Título Preliminary survey of factors affecting the exposure of harvesters to pesticide residues.
Información bibliográfica June 1974, Vol.35, No.6, p.374-380. Illus. 4 ref.
Resumen Investigation into exposure of grape, orange and peach harvesters to pesticides. A diagram illustrates the various environmental, toxicological and other factors influencing exposure to and absorption of pesticide residues by agricultural workers. Work procedures are described in detail for each crop, with observations on clothing, hours of work, work rates, etc. Details of air sampling procedures used and results of airborne dust analyses (concentration and particle size) are given. The high values for airborne particulates suggest that contaminated dust is the primary vehicle for residue exposure.
