Mercury from an organomercurial fungicide accumulated in surface soils, with negligible lateral migration, following annual applications of 2.10 kg/ha over a period of 15 years. No toxicity was apparent from relatively high soil levels of Hg (455 ppm) on the growth of velvet bentgrass (Agrostis canina L.). Elemental composition of turf plants showed 1.68 ppm Hg with normal levels of other transition elements (Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn).
