Baker, Brian P.; Grant, Jennifer A.
Corn oil is a common food ingredient produced from corn, and as such, has few safety concerns. While not widely used as an active pesticide ingredient, its primary pesticidal use is as a suffocating oil of insects and for post-harvest treatment of cereals and beans. Corn oil may also be used as an adjuvant or inert ingredient with other active ingredients.
