Summary

In tests conducted to determine the effects of ozone and pesticides acting together on foliage, methomyl and ozone interacted to produce greater injury than that produced by the sum of the two applied separately, whereas diazinon and ozone interacted to produce an antagonistic response (less injury than when applied separately). These complex interactions, and the varying effects of different amounts of the substances, suggest the need for future research.
