Abstract

Relevance. The strawberries are consumed mostly fresh, that is why the toxicological assessment of chemical protection formulations applied on strawberries is compulsory before its entering the market.

Objective: toxicological characteristics of modern pesticides used in the system of strawberries chemical protection.

Materials and methods. Aktara 25 WG, inc., Switch 62.5 WG, Force 1.5 G, G, Nuprid 600 TN, and Torero SC pesticide preparations containing thiamethoxam, cyprodinil, fludioxonil, tefluthrin, imidacloprid, methamitron, and ethofumezate were the materials of the toxicological evaluation conducted according to the data of literary and official Internet sources.

Results. A analysis of the literature on the toxic properties of the studied pesticides and its active ingredients used to protect strawberries has been carried out and the classes of hazard were established according to the current Ukrainian hygienic classification of pesticides.

Conclusion. Switch 62.5 WG, Force 1.5 G, G, Nuprid 600 TN, and Torero SC pesticide preparations and fludioxonil, cyprodinil and metamitron active ingredients are classified according to acute inhalation toxicity as limiting criterion to the second integral hazard class (moderately hazardous), and Aktara 25 WG, preparation and thiamethoxam – to third integral hazard class (hazardous), active substances imidacloprid, tefluthrin, ethofumezate – to the first integral hazard class (extremely hazardous).
