Abstract The author examined 152 persons (tractor drivers, market gardeners and farm workers) who had applied a mixture of insecticides during periods of 4 to 5 days with intervals of 15 to 20 days. The duration of daily exposure had been 8 to 10 h. The most significant symptoms of poisoning related to the blood (erythropenia, lowering of haemoglobin concentration, neutropenia, eosinophilia and leucopenia). It is recommended to make tractor cabins impervious and to supply them with purified and cooled air. The preparation of the mixture should be as fully mechanised as possible to avoid all contact with the pesticide.
