Abstract
Data are tabulated on residues following weekly sprays of 0.03% (standard rate) parathion applied from 15 June to 31 August (on apples) and from 3 June to 3 August (on peaches). There was no apparent build-up from week to week in the foliar levels of parathion, paraoxon or other cholinesterase-inhibiting materials as a result of frequent spraying.
