The purpose of the review is to assess the degradation sample of Thiophanate-methyl (70% WP) fungicide, three treatments (1.5gm/L. 3gm/L. and double spray 1.5gm/L) were used on cucumber yield. We carried out the experiment under greenhouse conditions in plant protection department/Ministry of Agriculture during 2017–2018 season. The researchers carried out the quantitative analysis of the fungicide residues as carbendazim was using High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) using QuEChERS extraction method. I found the rate of recovery was 92-106% and the comparative standard variation (RSD) were below 3.8%. Next the first order kinetics the fungicide degrades in cucumber found the half life value in cucumber between 12.2–13.4 days unheeding of position and dose.
