Title Minimum waiting periods for safe work with phosdrin and vydate in greenhouses
Original title Minimalni srokove za bezopasna rabota s fosdrin i videjt v oranžerii [in Bulgarian]
Bibliographic information 1987, Vol.30, No.5, p.39-43. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract Degradation dynamics of vydate and phosdrin were followed on treated greenhouse flowers. Vydate reduces plasma and erythrocyte cholinesterase activity (ChEA). It is a pesticide that degrades slowly. Phosdrin degrades faster and the amount when no effect on ChEA is observed (0.25mg) allows one-hour exposure of workers (weeding and picking carnations) as early as the first day after spraying. Minimum waiting periods are proposed for work in greenhouses after spraying: 3 days for phosdrin and 4 days for vydate.
