Shubham Mehta: IIT-JEE 2011 topper celebrates his success with his family and his three mentors, Bharat Kumar Matoria (BKM), Shiv Pratap Raghuvanshi (SPR) and Chaandeep K Singhal (CDS), who have helped him overcome his shortcomings and achieve his goal.
The presentation aptly describes the Indian agricultural scenario, implications faced by farmers due to the peculiar Indian climate and the importance of endosulfan on Indian farms.
In an interview with Mr. pradip Dave, President, PMFAI, he has mentioned various issues which pose a threat to the Indian Pesticide Industry. The Central Insecticides Board (CIB), a Government of India body, has been issuing registrations for import of readymade pesticide formulations without registering the technicals. This presents a great danger for the country as even the government would not be in a position to know where the raw material comes from and whether it is toxic, sub-standard or
There is experimental evidence of adverse effects of endosulfan on the male reproductive system, but there are no human data. Therefore a study to examine the relationship between environmental endosulfan exposure and reproductive development in male children and adolescents was undertaken. The study population was composed of 117 male schoolchildren (10–19 years of age) of a village situated at the foothills of cashew plantations, where endosulfan had been aerially sprayed for more than 20 year
On the basis of the report of scientific panel on contaminants in the food chain, it is concluded that in contrast to most related organochlorine pesticides, endosulfan has a less pronounced affinity to lipids. Consequently, bio-magnification and bio-accumulation of endosulfan, in terrestrial food chains, is less likely to occur. Moreover, Endosulfan is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and distributed to the kidneys and liver and to a lesser extent to other tissues causing no har
USEPA- Reregistration Eligibility Decision for Endosulfan states that Endosulfan, a broad spectrum contact insecticide and acaricide is neither mutagenic nor carcinogenic thus proving it safe for use. This largely clarifies the prevalent misinformation about endosulfan which states that it is harmful to human health.
Although the report mentions that exposure to endosulfan has resulted in both reproductive and development effects in nontarget animals, particularly birds, fish and mammals, a sci
This analysis deals with finding the residues of Endosulfan in blood. Researchers, Atmakuru Ramesh and Perumal Elumalai Ravi tested the blood samples of workers and people exposed to Endosulfan for a long time. The study concludes the absence of endosulfan residues in the blood reports.
This study was undertaken to know the presence of pesticide residues in river water & sediment samples collected from the major rivers across India which are traditionally used as a source for irrigation. The study aimed to identify the presence of residues of most commonly used pesticide, endosulfan. The results showed no detection of endosulfan in any of the samples analyzed.
Yamuna, a prominent river of India covers an extensive area from Yamunotri glacier through six Indian states. Residues of endosulfan were analyzed in water of river Yamuna along its stretch passing through. The studies concluded that endosulfan remained below detection limits. Hence, the report clearly states the absence of endosulfan accumulation in water.
This study is done by Dr. Manpreet Kaur in 2008 for detection of residues of endosulfan in fresh water fish species in Punjab, India. After detailed studies it has been concluded that no residues of endosulfan have been detected in any fish samples thus proving it safe for use.
