Abstract
Organophosphorus intoxication is a potential hazard to agricultural workers who are exposed to crops sprayed with pesticides. Though the symptoms are well known and effective treatment is available, workers are in danger because of the likelihood of both repeated exposure and lack of awareness of the presence of pesticide residues. Regulations to control exposure have been difficult to design, due to climatic differences, application practices, and exposure mechanisms. Very little is known about the exposure mechanism and the influence of the environment on pesticide behavior. Some results of human exposure experiments, and future work are discussed.
