Pesticides used on coffee farms, part 3: Common pesticides #coffee

A systemic organophosphate insecticide used against leaf miner. In the U.S., restricted use due to its high toxicity to mammals by all routes of exposure. It is also highly toxic to birds and fish.

High levels of toxins can be attained in this manner and has resulted in avian mortality in connection with disulfoton use.
