    DDT inhibits germination and plant growth. However, the type of plant it is determines how much it is affected by DDT. Oil rich plants are more affected by DDT than cereals. Also, the size of the plant seed is related to how much DDT it will absorb. The DDT absorbed is then affects the normal metabolism of the plant cells having been transferred into the cytoplasm by the lipids. This is what prevents the plant from growing properly.

    It’s important to note that DDT is not famous for being harmful to plants; it is banned in the USA except for in cases of public health emergency because of its extreme negative effects on animals and humans.
