Abstract

Residues of the polar pesticide pymetrozine were compared using two methods: hydromatrix and liquid–liquid extraction LLE. The biological half-life and the final residue level were investigated using Aster scaber over a 10-days cultivation period. The respective biological half-lives of the pesticide were 4.2 and 3.5 days at the recommended and double dose. The final residue levels were 1.28 and 1.98 mg kg, respectively, at the same application rate of pymetrozine according to the GAP standard of the United Kingdom. Average recovery was higher with LLE than with the hydromatrix method. Dissipation curves of pymetrozine were influenced by the application amount and growth rate of A. scaber. The final residue level of pymetrozine could be predicted to be lower than the UK maximum residue limit for lettuce applying the GAP standard.
