Abstract:Malathion was applied to grain sorghum from 6 hybrids at the rate of 1.0 pint of 57% emulsifiable concentrate per 1000 bushels. Little hybrid effect on malathion degradation was found during 12 months' storage at 80 and 60% relative humidity. Grain moisture content and storage temperature significantly affected residue retention, but foreign material had no effect on the rate of malathion disappearance.
