According to accepted agricultural practice, residue levels of lindane (T-HCH), other HCH isomers and HCB were determined in carrots and sugar beets grown under field conditions, where lindane had been applied to the soil as a sanitation agent Samples of leaves and roots showed lindane and a-HCH residues. Significant concentrations were observed in he carrot, especially in the peelings of the roots. High levels of lindane and a-HCH residues were also observed in he seeds developed in growing plants, as well as PHCH and GHCH, which were not detected in growing plants, indicating specific accumulation of HCHs in the seeds.

Palabras clave: HCH isomers, HCB, root vegetables.
