Abstract Exposure levels in workers using a 1000:1 dilution of trichlophon (dimethyl(2,2,2-trichloro-1-hydroxyethyl)phosphonate) in apple orchards were evaluated. Average exposure levels were 177mg per person using speed sprayers and 1,179mg with power sprayers. Plasma and erythrocyte cholinesterase activity showed no significant differences before and after spraying.
