Concern about persistence of synthetic pesticides in soil and the environment in general has been greater where chlorinated hydrocarbon compounds have been involved than where organophosphorus pesticides have been used. The purpose of the study was to determine the disappearance of parathion residues in soil following topical applications of the compound. The results are intended to have application to problems related to waste pesticide disposal, of leaching, and of degradation or disappearance of parathion in the environment, as well as to the problem of hazard to children who may come in contact with contaminated spillage areas.
