Contents Notes
From 1962 to 1970, massive quantities of herbicides were sprayed on test areas at Eglin AFB Reservation, Florida, to evaluate developmental aerial spray systems. Questions were recently raised about the potential ecological and environmental effects on the test areas. Therefore, a study was conducted to determine if soil that had received massive quantities of herbicide would support seed germination, vegetative growth, and fruit production of seven selected agronomic crops. The study showed that the level of herbicides which remained in the soil was not high enough to prevent germination, plant growth, or fruit production. (Author).
