A two season (2005-2007) study on persistence of propineb (Propineb 70% WP) was undertaken in Tomato (at two locations) following the application at two doses 2.0 and 4.0 kg a.i ha-1. More than 92% of the initial residues dissipated within 10 days after application irrespective of doses, seasons and locations. The residue was detectable up to 15 days after application. Assuming first order kinetics the half-life values varied from 2.11 to 2.64 days. The safe waiting periods of 7 days are recommended for Tomato.
