Residues of phosalone were determined on and in mature Valencia oranges and in dried citrus pulp cattle feed prepared from the field-treated Citrus fruits. The residue half-life was 40-45 days, and about half the residue remaining 35 days after treatment persisted in the dried cattle feed. Residues in the edible part of the fruits did not exceed 0.03 p.p.m. at any time and were not detectable in samples taken 30 and 79 days after spraying.
