The Effect of Dosage and Storage Time on the Formation of Bound Residues in Paddy, Milled Rice and Maize
Syed, Mohd Arif and Arshad, Juzu Hayati and Ramli, Johari and Muse, Radzali and Mahmood, Zabedah (1994) The Effect of Dosage and Storage Time on the Formation of Bound Residues in Paddy, Milled Rice and Maize. Pertanika Journal of Tropical Agricultural Science, 17 (3). pp. 145-148. ISSN 0126-6128
Stored unmilled rice (paddy), milled rice and maize treated with radiolabelled malathion formed bound 14C residues. After 3 months of storage, the bound residues in the grains treated with 10J.Lg/g malathion accounted for 10.8, 6.5 and 13.3% of the applied dose in paddy, rice and maize respectively. After 6 months, the corresponding values of bound residues were 14.2, 4 and 17.7% respectively. Increasing the dosage of malathion to 50J.lg/ g does not significantly increase the percentage of the bound residues formed. However, the absolute amount increased by more than 410ld in all the grains tested.
