Within the past three years, several esters of phosphoric acid have been manufactured and applied on an expanding scale because of their exceptional effectiveness as agricultural insecticides. Requirements for this purpose have increased rapidly, in spite of a high toxicity for man and other animals, because these compounds have already played a vital rôle in the economically important task of protecting food and other crops from the ravages of insects. Such damages amount to billions of dollars annually. Some of the phosphate esters are peculiarly effective for this purpose, to an extent equaled by none of the former crop protection
