This data report is a summary of Fiscal Year 1970 results of the National Soils Monitoring Program. It includes data on pesticide applications, soil residues, and crop residues collected from 1,506 cropland sites in 35 States. Pesticide application data are summarized by all sites and by State. Soil residue data are itemized similarly, but also include data by cropping region. Tables generally give the number of sites, number of times a pesticide was applied or detected, percent occurrence, arithmetic mean application rate or residue level, and range of residues detected. Pesticides applied most frequently were atrazine, 2,4-D, captan, and malathion.
