The acute toxicity of azodrin (monocrotophos, an organophosphorus insecticide) was determined on a soil organism, Eisenia foetida. The median lethal concentrations (LC50) were derived from a 48-h paper contact test and from artificial soil tests. The LC50 of azodrin in the paper contact test was 0.46 +/- 0.1 microg cm(-2) (23 +/- 6 mg L(-1)) and those in the 7- and 14-day artificial soil tests were 171 +/- 21 and 132 +/- 20 mg kg(-1), respectively. The neurotoxic potentiality of azodrin was… CONTINUE READING
