Title The combined biological effect of high air temperature and the pesticide anthio
Original title Sočetannoe vlijanie na organizm vysokoj temperatury vozduha i pesticida antio [in Russian]
Bibliographic information July 1974, No.7, p.18-21. 3 ref.
Abstract Results of exposure evaluations in cotton farming workers applying a new insecticide and acaricide - anthio, a phosphorodithioate preparation. The evaluations were carried out under both laboratory and field conditions, i.e. during the hot season. It was found that high air temperatures (36-40░C) potentiate the toxic effects of anthio. Animal experiments have shown that the application of heat enhances the toxicity of the pesticide by a factor of 1.5 to 2.
