||A four-farm pilot study was conducted during May and June 1992 in southeastern Minnesota to test and evaluate a variety of different sampling methods for determining the potential human exposure of farm applicators and their families to 26 different pesticides during routine agricultural pesticide applications. The study design incorporated sampling methods that included the potential routes of exposure through inhalation, ingestion, and dermal adsorption. The paper includes a discussion of the study design, the sampling rationale, and a profile of the different types of environmental samples collected from air, soil, house dust, dermal patches and gloves, diet (drinking water, solid food, and beverages), and biological samples (blood and urine).
