The relationship between the levels of dermal and respiratory exposure to pesticides and the amount of pesticide on the leaves of the plants has been studied during cutting of carnations in greenhouses.
The study was focused on four pesticides and performed in 18 farms in the Netherlands.
Dermal exposure measured by using long-sleeved cotton gloves is strongly related to the amount of dislodgeable foliar residue (DFR).
A transfer factor from leaves to hands of approximately 4500 cm2/hr (one-sided projected area) has been calculated.
