Employing oat seedlings as plant indicators of herbicide toxicity, the amount of fenuron residues remaining in forest soils five months alter spring applications was estimated. Of three variables tested: soil depth, soil texture, and herbicide rate, soil texture alone was significantly related to residue accumulation. Residues leached most rapidly from sandy loam soil; conversely, the greatest amount of fenuron residues occurred on a silty clay loam soil.
