In contrast to England, where DNOC has proved a hazard, the use of DNOC in the Wenatchee Valley appears to involve shorter working hours, more dilute stock solutions, more dilute spray solutions, and the application of much less of the compound during a season by any one worker. The measured exposure to DNOC of spray operators in the Wenatchee Valley and their urinary and blood levels of the compound indicated that these operators are not subject to a significant hazard in connection with the recommended use of DNOC for thinning blossoms.
