  • What type of mitigation practices can be implemented?

    • Management Practices


How does it happen l.jpg
How Does It Happen? Container Crop Industries

  • Irrigation (carrier)

  • Planting Media (source)

    Runoff + planting media

    = pesticide runoff?

Mitigation practices l.jpg
Mitigation Practices Container Crop Industries

  • Reduce Irrigation Runoff

  • On-site solid removal:

    • PAM

    • In-line sediment trap

    • Collection pond

    • Vegetative filtration

    • Adsorptive filters

  • Capture and Recycle Runoff

    • Treat recaptured water

Slide27 l.jpg

PAM (Polyacrylamides) Container Crop Industries

  • Charged (anionic) linear chain polymer with a high molecular weight.

  • Granular, liquid, or tablet.

  • Reduces the movement of soil particles as well as associated chemicals (some pesticides and nutrients).

PAM Treatment


Slide30 l.jpg

Sediment Trap Container Crop Industries

  • Effective in slowing flow and dropping out sediment.

  • Easy to remove deposited sediment.

  • Most effective when flow is slow and slope is less than 5%.

  • Can be utilized when space is limited.


Slide32 l.jpg

Sediment Pond Container Crop Industries

  • Slows the movement of water entering channel.

  • Allows for the further settling of soil particles.

  • Temporary holding basin under low flow conditions.


Slide34 l.jpg

Vegetative Filter Container Crop Industries

  • Traps sediment and reduces volume of runoff.

    • Canna x ‘Tropicanna’ – propagation

  • Removes pesticides by trapping sediment as well as providing a beneficial environment for decomposition.

  • Most effective when flow rate is slow allowing for evapotranspiration to reduce overall flow.
