Impact of Organophosphate fungicide (Hinosan TM ) and Organochlorine (Endosulfan TM ) on the growth of tadpoles of Bufo melanostictus was studied. The weight and length of tadpoles exposed to both Hinosan and Endosulfan decreased in all pesticide concentrations, (0.001 to 0.04ppm Endosulfan and 0.1 to 0.45ppm Hinosan) with maximum reduction on thirtieth day. Endosulfan was found to be more toxic than Hinosan to tadpoles of this toad.
