Title Aspects of working conditions in agriculture associated with the use of granulated pesticides
Original title Osobennosti uslovij truda pri ispol'zovanii v sel'skom hozjajstve granulirovannyh form pesticidov [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Feb. 1984, No.2, p.28-30. 3 ref.
Abstract Exposure of agricultural personnel to furadan (carbofuran) and phosphamide (dimethoate) was monitored during pesticide application and crop harvesting. When tractor drivers opened furadan applicators to clear blockages, they were exposed to levels of the substance above the MAC; otherwise, exposure levels for both compounds were well below recommended limits. Thus, working conditions are better with granulated pesticides than with alternative forms (liquids, powders).
