Health implications from monocrotophos use: a review of the evidence in India
AbstractDescription: The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have encouraged countries to phase out highly hazardous pesticides. Leading Asian countries have banned the use of monocrotophos because of unacceptable health risks. In India, however, monocrotophos continues to be produced, used and exported. This publication is designed to provide health policy-makers with technical information needed for urgent action to reduce the availability of and the demand for highly hazardous pesticides, as recommended by WHO and FAO.
