Abstract

Economic agricultural production requires the use of insecticides. The organophosphate esters have their established position within the available insecticides. Moreover, in practical veterinary medicine, the organophosphate esters found a more manifold field of application than the organochlorine compounds. The organophosphate esters also gained ground in hygiene for the protection of human health, largely because of the occurrence of insecticide resistance towards organochlorine compounds (Anonymous 33).
