Studies were carried out to determine the health hazards associated with the use of certain dinitro compounds (DNOSBP and Na-DNOC) as weed control and fruit tree blossom thinning sprays in the State of Washington. Dermal exposure of spray equipment operators was determined by exposing absorbent alpha cellulose pads and items of white cotton clothing on various parts of their bodies for one or more complete cycles of spraying. Contamination of hands was measured by rinsing in water in a polyethylene bag. Respiratory exposure was estimated from contamination of filter pads on respirators worn during spraying operations.
