Abstract

Monitoring of DDT and HCH residues in the environment of PaliaKalan during 2009 to 2011 revealed low to moderate levels of these insecticides in cow, buffalo, goat& breast milk samples. The levels of the DDT and HCH residues in animal & human milk collected from rural areas having intensive sugarcane, wheat & paddy cultivation in PaliaKalan were analysedall samples contained detectable quantities of DDT, HCH and its metabolites. Total HCH residues were high than those of DDT in all the samples.The total concentration of DDT & HCH was found lower than the previous studies carried out in India.These results indicate that the overall organochlorine-residue levels in PaliaKalan are slightly degrading. The residues were quantitatively analyzed on Gas Chromatograph with ECD &confirmed by Gas Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer-Quadrupole on electron ionization (EI) mode.The data from this study is added to the scientific data and knowledge on OCPs levels in milk which was not' available forPaliaKalanKheeri Region, India.
