Title Research on the concentration of pesticide aerosols in crop-dusting
Original title Istraživanje koncentracije aerosola pesticida za vrijeme zapraživanja poljoprivrednih kultura [in Serbocroatian]
Bibliographic information 1975, Vol.17, No.1, p.5-18. Illus. 42 ref.
Abstract Results of investigations to determine exposure to pesticides in 3 Yugoslav agricultural undertakings. The pesticides used fell into 3 groups: chlorinated hydrocarbons (lindane, DDT, DDD, mirex), organophosphorus compounds (phosphamidon), organomercury compounds (Radosan); the toxicity of these substances is described. Worker exposure was determined by individual sampling devices and by chromatographic analysis of the samples. The results obtained showed that workplace concentrations considerably exceeded TLVs, particularly in the case of DDT and Radosan.
