Abstract After having been harvested, potatoes are often stored at the farm. Chlorpropham (CIPC) is used in the potato storage to ensure potato sprout inhibition. This substance has a fairly low vapour pressure and easily attaches itself to material in the potato storage such as: potatoes, soil and construction materials. The structure of the potato storage often holds a large amount of CIPC. The extent to which CIPC is emitted through ventilation air is unknown. This study answers the question regarding the extent in which CIPC is emitted from the building to the outside environment via ventilation air and air leaks.
