Gas chromatographic and enzymatic analysis cholinesterase-inhibition method were used to monitor the metabolism of the organophosphorus insecticide 0,0-diethyl S-ethylthiomethyl phosphorodithioate phorate applied foliarly to three economically important plants Homestead tomato, Wiley sorghum, and Honey sorghum. The resulting data provided guidelines in predicting toxicity and persistence of metabolite residues for high concentrations of insecticides employed by the military. Author
