Abstract There is little information on the effects of propachlor (synonym: ramrod) on humans. A few cases of contact and allergic dermatitis in exposed farmers and production workers have been reported. Patch tests revealed a positive patch test reaction, irritation reaction or hypersensitivity. There have been no reports of other symptoms or diseases either among occupationally exposed humans or the general population. Detailed summaries in French and Spanish.
