ABSTRACT

His study was conducted at College of Agricultural Studies, Sudan University of Science and Technology Farm to evaluate the residual effect of the recommended dose of Malathion (450kg/ha), an organophosphate insecticide, and Sevin(450kg/ha), a carbamate insecticide, on the dry weight and length of garden rocket The result showed that, the recommended dose of Sevin has positively affected both variables; the average length and weight of treated plants. The recommended dose gave significantly higher plant height (52.1cm) than the other treatments and higher number of leaves (21.0) and leaf area (11 cm2 and.0 12.0cm2, for Malathion and Sevin, respectively).The total nitrogen percentage and extractable phosphorous were significantly affected by both pesticides. The pH and salinity were not significantly affected.
