Information @ a Glance


  • Phorate, generically, a powerful pesticide effective against insects, mites, and nematodes.
  • Phorate is a systemic insecticide that acts by inhibiting cholinesterases, enzymes involved in transmitting nerve impulses. Chemically, it is an
    organophosphate, O,O-diethyl S-(ethylthio)methyl phosphorodithioate. Like all organophosphates, it is related to the nerve gases and is among the most toxic of all pesticides to vertebrates, including humans.
  • The hydrolysis of phorate, an organophosphorus pesticide, was studied under simulated environmental conditions. Several metal oxides (aluminum hydroxide, hematite, goethite, and ferrihydrite) were chosen to represent the solid phase in natural aquatic systems.
  • Phorate [O,O-diethyl-S-(ethylthio)methyl phosphoradiothioate] degrading bacteria were isolated from agricultural soil and characterized based on their morphological and biochemical characteristics.
  • Phorate and disulfoton are organophosphate insecticides containing three oxidizable sulfurs, including a thioether.
  • The effects of a synthetic nematicide Phorate (O,O-diethyl thiomethyl phosphoro dithioate) on some biochemical components of the seeds of treated soyabean cultivars TGM 80 and TGM 344 results that treated plants had significantly (P = 0.05) higher crude fibre, crude protein, fat/oil and phosphorus contents but lower free fatty acids than the control.
  • Phorate can be determined by GC using capillary columns with a flame photometric detector (FPD) or a nitrogen-phosphorus detector (NPD).
  • Phorate accident happened in a tea estate in Idukki. Bamboo is being grown in this plantation as a part of diversification plan following the fall in the price of tea.
  • Application of phorate in the soil is a common practice in cardamom plantations. A boy of 16 years who was working as a temporary labourer became ill while applying phorate.
