Abstract

The team performed medical examinations, including cytogenetic examinations, on 55 people working professionally with agrochemicals in eight farmers' cooperatives of County Csongrad in the southern region of Hungary. The people exposed to spraying in a closed space showed no increase in chromosome aberrations. There was an increase in chromosome aberrations in workers exposed to these agrochemicals in open fields. No conclusions regarding workers' health can be drawn from these data. Regulations designed to prevent accidents with agrochemicals are more effective for closed spaces than for the open fields.
