Abstract : This is a progress report on Aerojet's studies of experiments currently underway (e.g. plant growth and DIMP in two modes of application to soil are continuing. Evaporation seemed to be a significant factor in the loss of DCPD from soil samples. To determine that this is true evaporation, several simple experiments were performed. The statistical treatment of the plant yields from the 1, 8 and 20 PPM DIMP growth tests awaits completion of the sugar beet and carrot harvest. (MM)
