    Abstract

    Sorghum and pinto bean plants were used as indicator organisms in a 14-day laboratory test to determine the impact of fuel and herbicide spills in agroecosystems. Plant survival and shoot length (from soil level to tip of highest leaf) were recorded and compared for plants grown in laboratory control soil and soil collected from the accident site. We also used soil from an uncontaminated area near the accident site as a control whenever possible. Chemical analysis was used to verify contaminants.
