Title Determination of the minimum time required for safe work after spraying of tobacco with Sayfos
Original title Opredeljane na minimalni srokove za bezopasna rabota sled prăskane na tjutjun săs sajfos [in Bulgarian]

Abstract Report on experiments to determine the time of decomposition of different concentrations of Sayfos (menazon), a pesticide used in tobacco growing. A table with the results shows the minimum number of days during which no contact with the treated tobacco leaves should be had. Sayfos decomposes very slowly after penetrating the soil, and it is therefore best applied only once after planting the crop.
