Agricultural chemical products can undergo chemical and physical changes on storage. Understanding the chemical and physical characteristics of a pesticide allows the applicator to make better decisions about which pesticide active ingredient and/or formulation to use for a particular situation. It also helps to understand how pesticides move in the environment. In the present studies the physico-chemical properties of various commercially available EC formulations of Deltamethrin and Profenofos insecticides, which are widely used for plant protection from insect pests were investigated. The physical and chemical properties of Deltamethrin and Profenofos were determined as per BIS specifications. The results of the present studies are further utilized for selection and also for agricultural application. The present study also focuses on quality of commercially available formulations of insecticides.
