  • Consequences Of Herbicide Persistence

    An important chemical property of soil that can affect herbicide persistence is pH. Soil composition is a physical factor determined by the relative amounts of sand, silt, and clay in the soil (the soil texture), as well as by the organic-matter content. The types and abundance of soil microorganisms present in the soil make up the microbial aspects of the soil environment. Generally, soils high in clay, organic matter, or both have a greater potential for herbicide…

Beach berm can include vegetation, such as trees, shrubs, or grasses. The most familiar characteristic of a beach berm is its type of sand or rock (Marinebio.net, 2014). Along the backshore, accumulations of wind-blown sand may form sand dunes, and when these are sufficiently stable they become consolidated by a characteristic dune vegetation, for…
