Potatoes from 186 commercial crops from fields treated with aldrin or dieldrin in the year of cropping contained mean residues of aldrin plus dieldrin of 0.01 ppm in the flesh and 0.1 ppm in the skin. Seventy crops from fields that had been treated with aldrin or dieldrin in years previous to the year of cropping and forty-four crops from reputedly untreated fields contained mean residues of aldrin/dieldrin of less than 0.01 ppm in the flesh and 0.02 ppm in the skin.
