Field Efficacy of Monocrotophos

Part of the Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology book series (RECT, volume 139)


Since monocrotophos was introduced for use in crop protection some 30 years ago, many new groups of insecticides have become available, ranging from traditional synthetic chemicals to natural and biological products. Nevertheless, monocrotophos has remained one of the preferred insecticides for farmers in the developing world. Its low cost and versatile activity on a wide range of pests make it the third most widely used insecticide in the world. It is currently registered and sold in more than 50 countries, including seven that are members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), of which four are also members of the European Union.
