|6.4. Problems of education and training in occupational health and hygiene in agriculture|
One of the distinguishing features of agriculture is that it is carried on in an essentially rural environment where working and living conditions are often closely interwoven. It is therefore necessary to provide the agricultural population with suitable education in hygiene. Hence, agricultural technicians and health officials should have received some training in occupational health and hygiene in agriculture.
