||Report on exposure to dust and Mancozeb during the manual transplanting of pine seedlings at a Swedish tree-nursery. These seedlings are treated with the fungicide Mancozeb (which contains manganese) during the growing period (1-2 years). In this study the total dust was measured and analysed with regard to manganese content. The results showed that exposure to Mancozeb was very low, less than 0.02mg/m3. No significant difference was found between samples from a surface treated with Mancozeb and another untreated one. The mean exposure to total dust was 2.2mg/m3 (time weighted average for a whole working day).
