Abstract/Summary Drift of aerially applied forest herbicides can result in chemical deposition to streams. Riparian vegetation is expected to attenuate drift, but there is little corresponding data. A field study was conducted in the Coast Range west of Corvallis, Oregon, to evaluate the effectiveness of forested riparian buffers. The buffers studied are typical of those used for small and medium fish-bearing streams in western Oregon as mandated by the Oregon Forest Practices Act. A helicopter sprayed two tracers over four transects. Twenty trials were conducted, resulting in over 1400 tracer samples. Results confirm that these vegetative barriers are effective at reducing deposition into streams. Reduction of deposition on artificial foliage samplers placed immediately above the stream surface ranged from 37% to 99% and averaged 92%. Reductions were less clear in stable atmospheric conditions due to low wind speed and highly variable wind directions. Low wind speed conditions are not generally high-drift scenarios, but there is evidence that drift of suspended droplets beyond the barrier, comprising a small fraction of the total mass, increases in stable conditions.
