||A larger role is proposed for labour science and ergonomics in agriculture, because of the essential nature of this industry and its likely increased importance in a world where food crises develop more frequently. In particular, the muscle burden on farmers should be decreased, as many of them (especially in Japan) are elderly and there are relatively few younger workers entering the field. Two case studies are outlined in fruit growing.
