Abstract: Dissipation behavior of newer insecticide molecules (emamectin benzoate, flubendiamide, indoxacarb, bifenthrin, deltamethrin and lambda-cyhalothrin) applied at different doses in okra crop during Rabi season in year 2014-15 was studied at 0,1,3,5,7,10,14 and 15 days after treatment. Dissipation was maximum on 10th day in emamectin benzoate (99.97%) followed by bifenthrin 10th day (97.73%), indoxacarb 7th day (96.66), deltamethrin 14th day (96.15%), flubendiamide 10th day (95.00%) and lambdacyhalothrin 10th day (89.79%). Half life (t1/2) values for the above insecticides were 0.6, 2.18, 1.32 to 1.58, 5.9 to 17, 5.5 and 5.0, respectively.
