Abstract BACKGROUND: Fipronil, a phenylpyrazole insecticide, and its oxidative sulfone metabolite are two potential pollutants from treated rice and cotton production. A consequence of these pollutants occurring in surface runoff is degradation of downstream aquatic ecosystems. Utilization of primary intercept drainage ditches as management practices to reduce fipronil concentrations and loads has not been examined. This study used ditch mesocosms planted with monospecific stands of common,emergent wetland vegetation to determine if certain plant species were more proficient in fipronil mitigation. RESULTS: Three replicates of four plant species were compared against a non-vegetated control to determine
