Coastal bermudagrass and corn treated with an emulsifiable concentrate of O,O-dimethyl O-4-nitro- m -tolyl phosphorothioate at I, 2, and 3 Ib/acre and sampled 0, 1, 7. 14, 21, and 28 days posttreatment were analyzed for residues of the parent compound, its oxygen analogue, and its cresol. The residues of the parent compound diminished rapidly, those of the analogue were low (none were detected in the 21- and 28-day samples) , and those of the cresol were highest in the 1- and 7-day samples. All residues on both crops diminished to less than 1 ppm in 28 days. In contrast, residues of the parent compound and its analogue in corn ensiled in glass jars were relatively stable and diminished at a much lower rate, and the residues of the cresol increased significantly.
