The systemic imidacloprid is one of the most used insecticides in the world for field and horticultural crops. This neurotoxicant is often used as seed-dressing, especially for maize, sunflower, and rape. Using a LC/MS/MS technique (LOQ = 1 microg/kg and LOD = 0.1 microg/kg), the presence of imidacloprid has been measured in maize from field samples at the time of pollen shed, from less than 0.1 microg/kg up to 33.6 microg/kg. Numerous random samples were collected throughout France from 2000…

Preliminary study on persistence in soil and residues in maize of imidacloprid

The values detected showed that maize pollen source should not be relevant for acute toxicity impact on honey bees, and imidacloprid residues <1 μg/kg showed that pesticide persistence in the soil and its residues in pollen and in maize plants showed that.

RESIDUAL BEHAVIOUR OF IMIDACLOPRID IN THE COUNTRY BEAN GROWING SOIL

The assessment of residual behavior of imidacloprid (Admire 20SL) in the soil of country bean agroecosystem and its risk assessment for consumption was studied. QuEChERS method was used for the

Does Imidacloprid Seed-Treated Maize Have an Impact on Honey Bee Mortality?

The hypothesis that imidacloprid seed-treated maize has no negative impact on honey bees is supported, and a significant correlation between the number of colonies per apiary and the mortality rates in an apiary is found.

Effect of imidacloprid uptake from contaminated soils on vegetable growth.

The plant metabolic analysis of vegetable shoots revealed that IMI may cause oxidative stress to the plant shoots with early exposure, however, the stressful situation of IMI seems to be relieved with the increase of some substances (such as spermidine and phenylalanine with late exposure).

UPTAKE AND METABOLISM OF IMIDACLOPRID IN SUGARCANE AND ITS PERSISTENCE IN SOIL

The uptake and metabolism of imidacloprid in sugarcane leaves and soil were studied following application and Bacillus alkaninitricus was found to be more efficient than B. aerophilus and their consortium while, in unsterilized soil, bacterial consortium proved to beMore efficient in imidcloprid degradation.

Insecticide residues in pollen and nectar of a cucurbit crop and their potential exposure to pollinators.

Levels of neonicotinoid residues in pollen and nectar from a pumpkin crop treated with formulated products containing imidacloprid, dinotefuran, and thiamethoxam using different timings and application methods were measured.

Movement of Soil-Applied Imidacloprid and Thiamethoxam into Nectar and Pollen of Squash (Cucurbita pepo)

There has been recent interest in the threat to bees posed by the use of systemic insecticides. One concern is that systemic insecticides may translocate from the soil into pollen and nectar of

PERSISTENCE AND FATE OF CARBOSULFAN AND IMIDACLOPRID RESIDUES IN POTATO

The present study was carried out to investigate the residual behaviour of carbosulfan and imidacloprid insecticides on potato plants (leaves and tubers). The initial deposits of carbosulfan and

GC-MS studies reveal stimulated pesticide detoxification by brassinolide application in Brassica juncea L. plants

To check the efficiency of seed pre-soaking with 24-epibrassinolide (24-EBL) for reduction of this pesticide in the leaves of Brassica juncea L, plants raised from 24- EBL pre- soaked seeds and grown in soils supplemented with IMI were raised.

In a greenhouse metabolism study, sunflowers were seed-treated with radiolabelled imidacloprid in a 700 g kg-1 WS formulation (Gaucho WS 70) at 0.7 mg AI per seed, and the nature of the resulting

A LC/APCI-MS/MS method for analysis of imidacloprid in soils, in plants, and in pollens.

For the first time, this study permitted us to follow the fate of imidacloprid in the environment and it is suggested that pollens from these crops are contaminated at levels of a few micrograms per kilogram, suggesting probable deleterious effects on honeybees.

Metabolism of imidacloprid in Apis mellifera.

The results suggested that the immediate neurotoxicity symptoms are due to the action of imidacloprid, whereas 5-hydroxyimidcloprid and/or olefin are involved in honeybee mortality.

Characteristics of imidacloprid toxicity in two Apis mellifera subspecies

Imidacloprid ranks among the more potent contact insecticides in this important pollinator species, and response kinetics showed that mortality was delayed at the higher doses of imidaclobrid.

EVALUATION OF THE TOXICITY OF IMIDACLOPRID IN WILD BIRDS. A NEW HIGH PERFORMANCE THIN LAYER CHROMATOGRAPHY (HPTLC) METHOD FOR THE ANALYSIS OF LIVER AND CROP SAMPLES IN SUSPECTED POISONING CASES

A high performance thin layer chromatography technique was developed and applied successfully to birds found dead after a known exposure to the compound and indicates that imidacloprid accounts for the majority of the toxic residues detected in the tissues and organs of affected animals.

Discrepancy between acute and chronic toxicity induced by imidacloprid and its metabolites in Apis mellifera

Oral acute and chronic toxicity of imidacloprid and its main metabolites and their main metabolites were investigated in Apis mellifera to study the rapid appearance of neurotoxicity symptoms and bee mortality induced only 72 h after the onset of intoxication.

Imidacloprid residues in Willapa Bay (Washington State) water and sediment following application for control of burrowing shrimp.

Imidacloprid applied directly to exposed sediments when the tide is out is efficacious for burrowing shrimp control but lacks studies of its behavior in the estuary, and its rapid dissipation from water was hypothesized to be due to extensive dilution by the tide.

Effects of dissolved organic carbon on sorption and mobility of imidacloprid in soil.

Dissolved organic carbon reduces imidacloprid sorption by competing with the pesticide molecules for sorption sites on the soil surface, allowing enhanced leaching of imidcloprid and potentially increasing ground water contamination.
