Abstract:One of the more desirable characteristics of plant systemic insecticides is the fact that when applied to the soil they are generally unavailable to beneficial insects and to many predators and parasites of pest insects. Because they are absorbed by the roots and translocated within the plant tissues, there is little opportunity for nonphytophagous insects to come into direct contact with the toxicants. However, if a plant should possess a mechanism whereby the toxicant would be transported to the external surface, this advantage of soil systemic insecticides would be negated.
