Residual patterns of fungicides fludioxonil and metconazole applied 2 or 3 times on wheat were investigated with consideration for their distribution rates in each compartment of wheat. Wheat samples collected at harvesting day were divided into three compartments such as grain, hull and straw, and the pesticide residue analysis was individually carried out to such compartments of wheat. The analytical methods of fungicide residues in wheat were acceptable, with recoveries of 84.3 to 113.3% and correlation coefficients of 0.1 to 4.7%. Due to the systemic characteristics, the residual amounts of metconazole in the grain part of wheat were greater as 0.13~0.17 mg/kg than those amounts (0.01-0.03 mg/kg) for fludioxonil. To absolute residue amounts of the fungicides in one wheat plant, their distribution rates in each compartment of wheat were the highest in straws (68.5-70.7%), followed by hulls (29.0-31.0%) and grains (0.2-0.8%).
