Information @ a Glance


  • Monocrotophos is an organophosphate insecticide.
  • Monocrotophos has also been shown to cause delayed neuropathy.
  • Monocrotophos is one of the most toxic pesticides to birds and is extremely toxic other wildlife, highly toxic to bees.
  • Trade names for products containing monocrotophos include Azodrin, Bilobran, Crisodrin, Monocil 40, Monocron, Nuvacron, Pillardrin, and Plantdrin.
  • Monocrotophos is a widely used, and extremely dangerous insecticide.


  • Monocrotophos is metabolized and excreted rapidly and does not appear to accumulate within the body.
  • Leading pesticides used in India include monocrotophos. Analysis of blood provides evidence of exposure of the body to pesticides and gives an indication of the body burden of the pesticide residues.
  • The effect of timing of monocrotophos application on its efficacy for the control of budworm, Earias spp. on seed kenaf was evaluated for two consecutive seasons in replicated field trials.
  • The tolerance phenomenon after repeated exposure to monocrotophos (MCP) was studied in rats.

Application & Technology

  • The monocrotopas and neem oil combination was found to be very effective in reducing the defoliator infestation.
  • Leaching is an important means of dispersion of pesticides in soil. The extent of leaching is determined by the solubility, adsorptive properties and rate of degradation of the pesticide, as well as by the natural water movement in soil, and the physical and chemical characteristics of the soil.
  • An analytical method has been developed for determining trace amounts of 39 kinds of pesticides in water with high precision and accuracy by gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry with a selected ion monitor.
  • Flame photometric detection method may be applicable to the determination of other organophosphorus compounds after evaluation for desorption efficiency, sample capacity, sample stability, and precision and accuracy.


  • A method developed for the detection of pesticide residues in essential oils, to apply those methodologies to screen oils produced by major growers in the industry and to produce a manual to consolidate and coordinate the results of the research.
  • A report highlights the problem of mass OP-poisoning in India, resulting in high morbidity and also stresses the importance of a good laboratory support in a poison centre.
  • It has been reported that in an increasingly globalised economy, agrochemical companies have been able to access and develop markets world-wide.
  • India is now the second largest pesticide manufacturer in Asia (after China), ranking 12th globally.
