Abstract

Technical hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) powder at the rate of 5, 10 and 25 kg/ha was dusted on to the soil which was ploughed, and seeds of coriander, amaranthus, carrot, knol-khol, chilli, cucumber and tomato were sown. The residue levels of alpha, beta, gamma and delta isomers of HCH in their edible parts were estimated after harvest. The decreasing order of HCH uptake among the vegetables was: coriander, amaranthus, carrot, knol-khol, chilli, cucumber and tomatoes. The level of insecticide in the plant tissue is not in direct proportion to the concn. of the insecticide in the soil. The residue level in plants did not exceed the tolerance limits established for human consumption.
