A survey was made of the spray practices used to apply DDT and parathion in the orchards of north central Washington. These data were needed as background material concerning the exposure of workers and concerning the amount of residue on fruits grown in orchards in which spray practices are carried out. The data have been tabulated with respect to the type and concentration of the formulation and the rate and method of application for the two major insecticides DDT and parathion.
