Residue data were obtained during a 12-mo period from com and wheat of various levels of moisture following 10 ppm applications of malathion emulsion spray. The sequence of malathion residue losses did not vary greatly among the different moisture levels 24 h after the initial deposits; however, the ratios of degradation were distinct for each moisture level. After 12 mo storage, 41, 21, 7, and 3% of the initial residue deposit remained on wheat containing 10, 12, 14, and 16% moisture, respectively; for corn the deposits were 34,24,8 and 5% remaining, respectively.
