Abstract:Various soil insecticide-nematicideswere applied at planting to soybean, Glycine max (L.) Merrill, in the field and greenhouse in combination with three rates of metribuzin to detect interactions causing phytotoxicity. The organophosphate soil insecticides phorate, disulfoton, and terbufos interacted antagonistically with metribuzin, causing severe, yield-reducing phytotoxcity. This damage did not occur with the organophosphate nematicide phenamiphos or with the carbamate soil insecticides aldicarb and carbofuran. It is recommended that metribuzin not be applied to soybeans if organophosphate soil insecticides are used.
