Endosulfan is a ubiquitous environmental contaminant. The chemical is semivolatile and persistent to degradation processes in the environment. Endosulfan is subject to long-range atmospheric transport, i.e. it can travel long distances from where it is used. Thus, it occurs in many environmental al formula: C₉H₆Cl₆O₃S. There is experimental evidence of adverse effects of endosulfan on the male reproductive system, but there are no human data. Therefore, we undertook a study to examine the relationship between environmental endosulfan exposure and reproductive development in Cited by: Case study – Effects of aerial spraying of endosulfan on the residents of Muliyar Panchayath.

Reyna L. Camacho-Morales, José E. Sánchez, in Mushroom Biotechnology, Endosulfan biodegradation by fungi. Endosulfan is an insecticide that is applied extensively to coffee, tea, and cotton crops, among others. In its commercial form, endosulfan is composed of two stereoisomers, α and β endosulfan, in a ratio.   The study of Endosulfan effects showed larger abnormality such as mental retardation, cancer and infertility in the victims. But the pesticide and fertilizer industries were very fast to refuse the studies. Endosulfan is manufactured and distributed in India by Hindustan Fertilizers limited. Endosulfan has been banned in Kerala. Endosulfan is a chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticide of the cyclodiene subgroup which acts as a contact poison in a wide variety of insects and mites. It can also be used as a wood preservative. It is used primarily on food crops like tea, fruits, vegetables and on grains.
