Monocrotophos, an organophosphate pesticide, was tested for its toxicity on female reproductive performance using rats as an experimental subject. Toxic effects in maternal rats included lower body weights and resorptions. Fertility and parturition indices were reduced in dose dependent fashion. However, gestation index was not affected. Viability and lactation indices were highly reduced in rats of high dose group. Birth weight and crown-rump length of pups in high-dose group were significantly less, with no effect on average litter size.
