Effect of genotoxic damage of pesticides on farmers
Author(s): Rajesh, Sudhir Kumar Kataria
Abstract: The paper studied the Pesticides, in addition to their intended effects, are sometimes found to affect non-target organisms, including humans. Genotoxicity of pesticides for non-target organisms and their influence on ecosystems and farmers are of worldwide concern. Because of the potential environmental impact connected with the introduction and heavy use of pesticides, it is necessary that the genotoxic potential of these pesticides like Lambda Cyhalothrin (LCT) and Imidacloprid (IM) especially on farmers be studied.
