The European Crop Protection Association and CLO-DVL joined forces in a project to compare operator exposure from several greenhouse spraying techniques. Five application methods were investigated. A standard spray gun with an operator walking forwards, a spray lance with an operator walking forwards and backwards and a trolley and a vehicle both with vertical spray booms. The exposure was measured at 15 different places on the body with patches and on gloves, using mineral chelates as tracer elements. The difference in exposure between the different techniques was very high. Walking backwards reduced the exposure by a factor of 7. The exposure on the collectors with the trolley and the vehicle was respectively 25 and 100 times lower compared with the standard spray gun. Besides a very large difference in exposure between the five techniques, there was also a large difference in exposure between the various parts of the body. All of this is important in consideration of operator safety and for the parts of the body that need to be protected best.
