In this study four different mixing/loading and application practices in potato fields were monitored for exposure of operators to pesticides.
Each operation - mixing, loading, and application - was measured individually in order to assess its relative contribution to the total exposure value.
Inhalation exposure was measured by trapping the pesticides with a sorbent tube while sampling the air around the operator's face.
Dermal deposition, which was measured by means of cotton gloves on the hands and by attaching patches to the operator's clothing, was the main contributor to the total exposure.
Dermal deposition on the hands during mixing and loading exceeded all other dermal values.
The experimental results are compared with the results obtained by the exposure assessment model PHED V1.1. This model gives an underestimation of the levels of operator exposure during mixing, loading and application.
