Abstract:Three years of field studies showed that the initial deposit and the rate of decomposition of residues of insecticides vary with the forage species. More insecticide was deposited upon application and disappearance of residnes was slower on timothy and alfalfa than on birds foot trefoil and red clover. The differences found were frequently significant. Differences in residue levels on different species are important in making practical recommendations for insect control on forages.
