Systemic insecticides were first developed in the 1950s, with the introduction of soluble or‐ ganophosphorus (OP) compounds such as dimethoate, demeton-S-methyl, mevinphos and phorate. They were valuable in controlling sucking pests and burrowing larvae in many crops, their main advantage being their translocation to all tissues of the treated plant. Sys‐ temic carbamates followed in the 1960s with aldicarb and carbofuran. Since then, both insec‐ ticidal classes comprise a large number of broad… CONTINUE READING
