The dissipations of afidopyropen and its metabolite in wheat plant and soil were determined using a quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged, and safe method with ultra‐high performance liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry under a field ecosystem. The limits of quantification were estimated for both target compounds as 0.001 mg/kg. The recoveries of afidopyropen and its metabolite ranged from 94 to 114% (soil), 90 to 109% (wheat seed) and 81 to 91% (wheat straw) at levels of 0.001, 0.01, 0.1, and 2.0 mg/kg with relative standard deviations ≤7%. The results of the residual dynamics experiments showed that afidopyropen dissipated rapidly in wheat plant and soil. Its metabolite initially showed a tendency of rapid increase followed by a decrease in wheat plant but could not be detected in soil. The data showed that the first + first‐order model was more suitable for describing the decline of afidopyropen in wheat and soil. The half‐lives of afidopyropen in wheat plant and soil were 1.65 and 1.21 days, respectively.
