Abstract:

The present study was carried out in selected six villages namely Nandkheda, Daithna, Katneshwar, Dohra, Hatta, Jawala of Parbhani and Hingoli districts of Marathwada region of Maharashtra State. A sample of 30 pesticide applicators from the age group of 25 - 45 years who were involved in pesticide application activity since 5 years was selected for on field trials of pesticide application activity by wearing protective clothing. designed by Department of Clothing and Textiles, College of Community Science, VNMKV Parbhani and Protective clothing available in local market. On the whole it can be concluded that the physiological cost of pesticide application was more when applicants wore marketed protective clothing than designed protective clothing. Statistical analysis revealed significant results, which indicated that the average working heart rate, average recovery heart rate, average peak heart rate and average total cardiac cost of work was reduced significantly when the task of pesticide application was carried out in designed protective clothing.
