    Abstract

    The development and duration of accelerated degradation of nematicides were studied in incubation experiments with soils from three experimental fields that had been treated annually for three to ten years with aldicarb, oxamyl, ethoprophos, fenamiphos or 1,3-dichloropropene. Highly accelerated degradation rates were measured for aldicarb, oxamyl and ethoprophos in a sandy soil (pH 7.3) treated three times. After five years without further treatments, these high rates were still found for aldicarb and oxamyl, but not for ethoprophos. In another field (sandy soil, pH 5.6) little or no increase in the degradation rates was measured in plots that had been treated ten times.
