Title Captan exposure in apple orchards
Bibliographic information Mar. 1983, Vol.44, No.3, p.209-210. 8 ref.
Abstract Determination of dermal and inhalation exposure to captan for commercial apples growers using airblast sprayers by measuring fungicide residues collected on patches attached to various parts of the body and on filters of specially adapted respirators. Calculated average dermal exposure was 2.78mg/h, and average inhalation exposure was 4.5 µg/h. For a 70kg man, this would represent a total daily intake of 0.25mg/kg. The captan LD50 for rats is 9000mg/kg.
