Riassunto in Inglese:
Pneumatic precision drills used in the sowing of dressed maize (Zea mays L.) seed contribute to the diffusion in the environment of dust containing pesticides. The environment and the operators can be exposed to abrasion dust during the sowing operations. The paper shows the first results of trials aimed at assessing the potential quantity of pesticide that an operator can inhale during the sowing operations of maize treated with the neonicotinoid insecticide clothianidin. The amount of inhalable dust was recorded by means of personal air samplers, applied to the operator during the operations of seed loading and sawing. In the meantime the dust drift was observed with air samplers placed at the field edge and on the tractor. The total amount of dust potentially inhaled by the operator during the entire sowing was about 2 ng min-1, with a maximum of 25 ng min-1 during the loading of seed period. These data are relevant for risk assessment.
