Intended to provide a framework for a research agenda on migrant and seasonal farmworker health and to serve as a resource for all those concerned with farmworker health, this report examines farmworker health data gathered within the past 10-15 years. The document contains the following material: (1) an overview of the major occupational health problems reported by migrant health centers; (2) a summary of the literature on each agricultural health problem presented; (3) information on ongoing research projects on farmworker occupational health; (4) recommendations for research priorities on farmworker health; (5) information on occupational safety and health laws covering agricultural workers; and (6) a resource guide on farmworker occupational safety and health, including training materials. One-third of the report is devoted to specific occupational health problems including communicable diseases, urinary tract infections/kidney problems, heat stress, pesticide-related illness, dermatitis, eye problems, accidents, noninfectious respiratory diseases, cancer, hazards for children in the fields, and hazards for pregnant women and/or the newborn.
