Workers in agriculture can experience numerous health issues, including pesticide and dust exposure, injury and stress. Many may face additional challenges due to language barriers, access to healthcare and poverty. The Rural Health Information Hub has information about the health status of farm workers and organizations that support agricultural health initiatives. ToxTown has occupational and environmental health resources for providers, employers and employees. ToxTown is available in English and Spanish.
