This research aimed to determine the effect of relative humidity and temperature in the application of organophosphorus and carbamate insecticides and impact on the colinesterasa of tomato agro producers (Solanum lycopersicum L.) in the location of" San Luis, Chimborazo, Ecuador.The technique used was spectrophotometry. The cholinesterase test was performed on the one hundred and seventy patients of the five communities exposed between one year and more than ten years, in the handling and application of organophosphorus and carbamate insecticides. The method used was kinetic-spectrophotometric (405 nm at 37 ° C). Through the Kruskal Wallis test and the regression and correlation analysis it was determined the significance and the level of correlation and determination between the variables under study and their effect on cholinesterase levels. Concluding that the applications of the organophosphorus and carbamate insecticides under greenhouse with low relative humidity and high temperature, accompanied by the lack of precautions in the management of the crop, contribute to the decrease of the cholinesterase level of the agro producers.
