- Phorate, generically,
a powerful pesticide effective against insects, mites, and
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
