Abstract A study was made of the efficiency of the use of pesticides to identify and quantify the wastes and losses which occur in the treatment of agricultural crops. The study was reported in two volumes. The first volume identified the management practices and decisions for three crops--corn, sorghum, and apples--that may lead to wasteful pesticide use, and quantified the pesticide wastes occurring on each crop as a result of these management practices. The second volume identified the physical factors that cause pesticide waste and losses both during and after crop treatment for agriculture in general, and estimated the application and postapplication pesticide losses and wastes that occurred in 1971 for each of the three above crops. The physical factors which were examined extensively in this study were pesticide overapplication and nonuniform distribution, pesticide drift, and pesticide losses from crops due to runoff and soil erosion.
