Original title Expositionsdauer beim chemischen Pflanzenschutz im Ackerbau [in German]
Bibliographic information 1990, Vol.45, No.3, p.120-122. Illus. 3 ref.
Abstract A questionnaire survey was conducted between 1977 and 1979 in approximately 1,500 crop farms in the Federal Republic of Germany to determine the frequency and amount of pesticide application. A follow-up study in 1987 included 500 of these farms. Data are presented for winter wheat, winter barley and sugar-beet. With these data and the data of a job study the length of exposure to pesticides was determined. For 100, 60 and 30ha crop farms 127, 85 and 37 hours of pesticide exposure were obtained, respectively.
