Abstract In order to investigate methods suitable for field disposal of small quantities of excess DDT on farms and orchards, the degradation of DDT buried with various concentrations of powdered zinc and a mild acid was followed. Powdered zinc mixed with DDT, acetone, and acetic acid led to the formation of DDD and DDMS, which are environmentally less objectionable than DDT or DDE.
