Abstract
The decay of ethyl-parathion (56382) on citrus foliage was followed for 16 days post-application in 32 groves in central California. Paraoxon (311455) comprised a significant fraction of the foliar residue in all groves. In 31 fields paraoxon decayed more slowly than parathion. The combined residues of parathion and paraoxon degrade such that the hazard to workers decreases with time.
