The aim of the study was to provide evaporative flux measurements during and after application of a Plant Protection Product (PPP), according to GAP under open field conditions.
The test system comprised inhalation personal air sampler dosimeters (air filters) evaluated at several heights, in order to cover both adults and children bystanders’ exposure. The study was done in a major representative area for the PPP applications in Spain, managed by Vicente Corts, Study Director for OPEX at SynTech Research Spain.
The rate of fumigant movement from the treated area to the atmosphere (field flux) is back calculated from these samplers, based on the measured fumigant concentrations around the plot boundaries and meteorological data. The results obtained will be used as supporting data for risk assessments.
The trial sponsor was impressed with SynTech’s deployment of technical and human resources and the high quality of the work done.
One more time, SynTech Research Spain staff has demonstrated its capability to achieve any new challenge!
