Buy Article:


Methoxychlor was applied to vegetables in small field plots at Beltsville, Md., at 1 pounds per acre in dusts and in wettable powder and emulsion sprays, and also at 3 or 3 pounds per acre in wettable-powder sprays. Residues determined at intervals appeared to justify a waiting period of only 1 day from last application to harvest, for summer and winter squash, cantaloupe, eggplant, pumpkin, peppers, tomatoes, Kohlrabi, turnip roots, and strawberries, at the present tolerance of 14 p.p.m. For okra a 1-day waiting period is needed, which would require a tolerance of 20 p.p.m., and for green onions 3 days, which would require a tolerance of 40 p.p.m.
