Clothing affords harvesters considerable protection against the elements and can retain substantial amounts of pesticide residue from treated crops. Normal work clothing of female harvesters was supplemented with rubber latex gloves and facial scarves to determine whether those measures reduced exposure. Captan fungicide exposures in female strawberry harvesters were assessed by determining urine clearance rates of tetrahydrophalimide (THPI). Clean rubber gloves were supplied to the 41… CONTINUE READING
