While attempting to assay cholinesterase inhibitory organic phosphorus insecticide residues in various plant tissues, it became apparent that the potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) presented a unique problem. It was observed that aqueous extracts of potato tubers or foliage, which had not been treated with insecticide, still gave a positive test by the method employed. Hence, a more thorough study of the nature of the interference was made.
