Many herbicides can exist in the atmosphere as both a droplet and evaporated vapor. Therefore, methods to assess personal exposures to herbicides samplers must be developed to optimize capture of both droplet and vapor phases. This webinar will describe the qualities of two such samplers. Measurements taken in both the lab and field will be presented to demonstrate sampler qualities and to detail the considerations needed to properly assess herbicide exposures.

At the completion of this activity, the learner will be able to:

  • Describe the concept of an inhalable sampler
  • Distinguish between two herbicide samplers in terms of their droplet collection efficiency
  • Identify different methods used to spray herbicides, and sprayer exposure concerns
