A schedule of sprays containing a mixture of y BHC and DDT has been proposed for the control of insects on brinjal (Solanum melongena) in India, and the residues resulting from its application on a field scale were therefore investigated. Emulsion sprays of 0.1 per cent. DDT and 0.1 per cent. gamma BHC were applied separately after the fruits had appeared, and residues on the sprayed fruits were determined immediately and after 3-15 days, in one series after washing in water.
