Effect of hardness of water on the acute toxicity of dimethoate to Puntius ticto (Ham.)



Effect of hardness of water on the acute toxicity of dimethoate to Puntius ticto (Ham.)



Uttar Pradesh Journal of Zoology 25(1): 67-70



The effect of hardness as CaCO3 of water (at 100 and 200 ppm) on the acute toxicity of dimethoate to P. ticto, a freshwater teleost, was investigated. The LC50 values of dimethoate for 24, 28, 72 and 96 h were 6.839, 5.5555, 5.070, 5.012 ppm under normal conditions in the laboratory (300 ppm). The hardness or water played an important role in the toxicity of dimethoate.
