Chlorpyrifos [O,O-diethyl O-(3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridyl) phosphorothioate] is the most widely used soil-applied termiticide in Australia. It is relatively stable, has low water solubility, is absorbed by organic matter, and has a high affinity for soil with low partitioning potential from soil matter to soil water. The purpose of this degradation study is to determine the effect of soil alkalinity on the longevity of termite protection when chlorpyrifos is applied as a termiticide in a range of… CONTINUE READING
