Determination of Aldicarb (Temik 15G) Residue in Cotton Plant
Tha fate of 14C-aldicarb pesticide [2-methy-2- (methylthio) propionaldehyde o- (methylcarbamoyl) oxime] in pots and field grown cotton plant was measured. 14C-aldicarb constituted the major portion of the 14C materials in the foliage, stem and cotton seed. Residues of aldicarb were determined with liquid scintillation counter. Temik 15G (aldicarb) was applied at 1.67 kg/da in-furrow on both sides of the rows of the cotton plants. Eleven weeks after applicaton, total aldicarb residues in the follige stem and cotton seed grown in pots were 3.38, 1.61 and 0.83 mg/kg, respectively, in the field experiment these values were 3.42, 1.62 and 0.65 mg/kg, respectively. Sixteen weeks after aplication, total aldicarb residues in the foliage, stem and cotton seed grown in pots were 1.45, 1.41 and 0.63 mg/kg respectively, in the field experiment these values were 1.42, 1.02 and 0.44 mg/kg, respectively. The aldicarb residue in soil samples was less then plant samples.
