Results are presented for the determination of malathion in Australian wheat, barley and oats and in Argentine wheat, maize and sorghum sampled on arrival in British ports. In Australian wheat the figures were mostly well below 8 ppm and the few instances exceeding this level are discussed. In Argentine wheat the maximum found was 6.2 ppm and most samples contained less than 2 ppm. Brief reference is made to the presence of other insecticides in Argentine wheat.
