This report contains a literature summary on the degradation of forty-five pesticides in soil. The point of beginning of each literature review is the year of issue of the patent for the particular pesticide. After compilation of the literature data for each pesticide, conclusions were formulated regarding the suitability of soil disposal of these pesticides. On the basis of the data collected in this report it was suggested that ten pesticides are suitable for soil disposal, twenty-one are not suitable for disposal, and the data for fourteen are insufficient to formulate any conclusions regarding their suitability for soil disposal.
