Phorate and Di-Syston®, O,O-diethyl S-[2-(ethylthio)ethyl] phosphorodithioate, on activated charcoal were evaluated for effect on seeding emergence and green bug control when applied as systemic insecticides to barley see. Significant reductions in plant stand resulted when either insecticide was applied at 1/2 and 1 1b actual per 100 1b of see. Effective control was recorded 6 weeks following planting and highly significant increases in yield over the untreated check were obtained.
