Abstract
The purpose of the research was to measure the quantities of fertilizer nutrients and pesticides which were removed in drainage water from agricultural land. Although some gross measurements of losses have been taken in major tributaries leading into Lake Erie, these have not been identified with regard to source areas and quantities of materials applied to the land. The data presented are believed to be somewhat representative of the pollution load going into Lake Erie from cultivated agricultural land. Sediment, total solids, nine plant nutrients, five pesticides, electrical conductivity, pH, and BOD in tile effluent and in surface runoff were measured from field plots on Toledo silty clay soil near Sandusky, Ohio, for the period 1969-71.
