Rapid transport of systemic and soil sterilant herbicides in soil during periods of net water flow may decrease the effectiveness of the chemicals to control unwanted vegetation and produce undesirable pollution of the ground water. An investigation of the influence of physical-chemical soil properties upon the transport of 2,4-D and paraquat in columns of organic and sandy soils was performed. Mathematical transfer function theory was used in connection with statistical hydrodynamics to develop a technique for analysis and prediction of herbicide elution from soil columns during miscible displacement experiments.
