Abstract:Greenhouse and field tests were conducted to compare the effectiveness against cotton insects of granules and fertilizer impregnated with phorate, disulfoton, and American Cyanamid CL-47031 (cyclic ethylene (diethoxphosphinyl) Dithioimido carbonate) and applied to cotton plants. Bioassays and radio assays of treated plants indicated that the levels of uptake from both formulations were similar after in-furrow and side dress applications. Phorate and disulfoton were stable on 1 grade of fertilizer for more than 3 months.
