Pyrethrins and synergists are usually used to protect food products in postharvest application (Lindgren et al. 1968). Data collected for food additive petition give us reliable information on the level of residues from synergized pyrethrin sprays. The data were obtained on the synergists by the gas chromatographic method of Bruce (1967). The data on the pyrethrins residue were by a gas chromatographic method of Bruce as yet unpublished.
