  • Lindane is one of the organochlorine pesticides, a major portion of persistent organic pollutants. Major use of lindane in Canada was on canola and corn. In this paper, temporal and spatial use trends of this pesticide in Canada between 1970 and 2000 have been presented Use of lindane on canola and corn in Canada between 1970 and 2000 has been estimated to be 9 kt, with highest value (558 t) in 1994. The intensive use of this pesticide has been in the Prairie Region of Canada, the provinces of… CONTINUE READING
