DescriptionA field study conducted on two forest soils, mineral and organic, indicated that high residues of the systemic insecticide Bidrin® were present in the upper 6 inches of soil for only 15 days following application. The rate of downward movement of the insecticide was fastest in the mineral soil. The total residue level during a 90-day period following application was approximalely equal for both soils.
