Abstract: Dissipation pattern of imidacloprid residues in fruits of sweet orange and elimination of its residue through washing were studied at North region, Hisar, Haryana, India during Kharif season year 2014-15. Residues were determined by highperformance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The average initial deposits of imidacloprid on the sweet orange rind was found to be 1.12 and 2.33 mg kg-1and in thecase of pulp it was 0.13 and 0.32mg kg-1from treatment at the recommended and double the recommended dose, respectively. The residues dissipated with time regularly in both the cases showing 70% dissipation in case of rind and showing 97% dissipation in case of pulp. The residues show 79.53 % reduction on 0 (2h after spray) day due to washing in single dose and 84.62% in case of double dose.
