Disulfoton at 1.1, 2.2. 4.5, 17.9 kg/hectare and menazon at 2.2 kg/hectare AI were tested on a sandy loam and a clay loam for control of Acyrthosiphon pisum (Harris) on peas. All treatments provided about equal control on both soils up to plant bloom. As the crop matured, the treatment of 1.1 kg/hectare disulfoton became less effective on the clay loam soil but retained its effectiveness on sandy loam. The treatment of 2.2 kg/hectare menazon was equivalent to the treatment of 2.2 kg/hectare disulfoton. Menazon or disulfoton did not affect directly plant growth or crop yields.
