The dissipation of residues of quinalphos was studied in/on brinjal fruits under field conditions in Assam, India. The insecticide (Ekalux 20 AF) was applied 35 days after transplanting by foliar spraying at 0.5 (T1) and 1.0 kg a.i./ha (T2). Four sprays were given at 15-day intervals. At either rate, the cumulative residues of the insecticide in/on marketable size fruits sampled 1 h after the last spray ranged from 1.26 to 1.79 mg/kg.
