The rate of absorption and translocation of emulsifiable formulations of demeton, dimethioate, disulfoton, phorate, mevinphos, phosphamidon, schradan, and American Cyanamid 12008 (O,O-diethyl S-[ (isopropylthio) methyl] phos-phorodithioate) through the roots of broccoli plants was determined on the basis of the mortality of wingless Myzus persicae(Sulzer) feeding, on the leaves 24, 48, and 72 hours post treatment. Demeton was absorbed and metabolized to highly toxic metabolites more rapidly than the other compounds. All the insecticides except mevinphos were more active at 23.9° than at 15.6°C.
