The thermal balance of tractor drivers in cotton farming during the hot season
Teplovoe sostojanie mehanizatorov hlopkovodstva v žarkij period goda [in Russian]
Study of climatic conditions in tractor cabs and measurement of parameters characterising drivers' thermal load (skin temperature, stroke volume, cardiac output, speed of processing information, etc.). The thermal balance of persons not protected against solar radiation and of persons protected by a cab were calculated from the results. The period during which the least favourable thermal conditions occur is between 13 and 17h in June and July; this should be taken into account in planning the working day. It is also suggested that showers should be installed on agricultural machinery, screens should be set up along field borders to shelter workers during breaks, and light work clothing should be supplied.

Contribution to the study of extrinsic allergic alveolitis
Beitrag zur "exogenen allergischen Alveolitis" [in German]
Describes and comments on 2 cases of extrinsic allergic alveolitis of occupational origin due to contact with domestic fowl (pigeons, chickens) and wet hay, respectively. Case history is most important in reaching a diagnosis, the radiological image being atypical and often almost imperceptible. This article emphasises the need, when interstitial alveolar lesions are observed, for considering the eventuality of extrinsic allergic alveolitis, for the purposes of differential diagnosis.

Gardeners' occupational microsporosis
Mikrosporie zahradníků jako profesionální dermatóza [in Czech]
Study reporting the extensive incidence of dermatophytoses caused by Microsporum gypseum in employees in 2 horticultural establishments. Strains identical to those from human lesions were isolated from soil samples, which could thus be considered the source of the infection. The authors believe that the skin microtrauma in persons in permanent contact with garden soil play an important part in the formation of geophilic microspora.

Physical workload in different body postures, while working near to, or below ground level.
The physical load of different working postures during a light job at low working level was compared while varying the frequency of forward movement and working level. The postures compared were bending, kneeling, squatting and sitting on a low stool. Energy expenditure and the increase in heart rate over a 5 min period were used as parameters. Numerous specific conclusions are drawn, including the observation that a substantial increase in workload in the bending position occurs when the working level is lower than the level of the feet. If work is to be carried out on the ground itself, the squatting position seems the most favourable one.

Aspergillus fumigatus mould as an agent of occupational lung diseases
Pleśnie Aspergillus fumigatus jako przyczyna schorzeń płuc o charakterze zawodowym [in Polish]
An account is given of the morphology, biology, occurrence and pathogenicity of Aspergillus fumigatus mould and of occupational aspergillosis (literature review, diagnosis). Serological tests showed that, in comparison to a control group, farmers run the highest aspergillosis risk, followed by tobacco and food industry workers. It is suggested that a light personal breathing apparatus should be worn by those occupationally exposed to hazardous concentrations of this mould. The need for regular lung function tests is stressed.

Exposure of spraymen to pesticides
Potential dermal and respiratory exposures, and the total exposure in terms of fraction of the toxic dose, were determined for 11 pesticides during orchard spraying with air-blast equipment. The highest total average exposure was just over 1% of the hourly toxic dose for workers applying the most toxic compound (carbophenothion). There was considerable variation in exposure to a specific pesticide depending on certain technical and environmental factors. Potential dermal exposure to each compound was much greater than potential respiratory exposure. There does not in normal circumstances appear to exist any serious risk of occupational poisoning.

Cholinesterase levels of cigar-wrapper tobacco workers exposed to parathion
Results of environmental and biochemical studies carried out to determine health hazards to tobacco harvesters. The cholinesterase level of 44 workers was monitored in 3 farms during the harvesting season. Although these workers had had contact with parathion residues (as shown by the presence of p-nitrophenol in urine and up to 5ppm of parathion on tobacco leaves), none showed any evidence of significant depression of red blood cell cholinesterase. One worker had a slight inhibition of plasma cholinesterase. It is recommended that a delay of 5 to 7 days should be observed before reentry into a field which has been treated with parathion.

Nitrous gas poisoning during silo filling - Silo-filler's disease
Forgiftning med nitrřse gasser ved ensilering - Silo-filler's disease [in Danish]
Following a brief review of the literature on severe or fatal poisoning due to silage (carbon dioxide, nitrous gases), the authors report on a case observed in Denmark in which a young agricultural worker who was required to enter a silo which had been filled with rye grass the previous day, was severely poisoned and, in spite of hospital treatment, died 41h later. Reference is made to similar cases and the related published data, and the considerable nitrogen-accumulation potential of certain vegetables is mentioned; these not only bind atmospheric nitrogen but, in view of modern agricultural techniques, contain increasingly large quantities of nitrogenous fertiliser.

Morphology and pathogenesis of chronic bronchitis due to grain dust (Experimental animal studies)
Morfologija i patogenez hroničeskogo bronhita ot zernovoj pyli (Ėksperimental'noe issledovanie) [in Russian]
To study the morphology of chronic grain-dust bronchitis, 165 albino rats were repeatedly exposed to the inhalation of natural and sterilised cereal dust and its mineral and vegetable compounds over a period of 9 months; in addition, these dusts were administered once or twice intratracheally. Exposure caused catarrhal and purulent bronchitis, bronchiectasis and granuloma at the site of particle deposition. The author considers the possibility of mycological and allergic action of cereal dust on the bronchial mucosa. A similar action can be found by clinical examination of persons with bronchitis and long-term exposure to cereal dust.

A study of agricultural accidents in relation to labour turnover
Opyt izučenija sel'skohozjajstvennogo travmatizma v svjazi s izmeneniem sostava rabotajuščih [in Russian]
Report of a statistical study on reported accidents in Soviet State farms during the period 1965-1970. Having found that, during this period, the accident frequency rate fell from 23.6 to 19.6 per thousand workers and that the number of lost working days due to accidents also fell from 492.2 to 171.3 per thousand workers, the author emphasised that labour turnover has a considerable influence on accident frequency reduction. The study showed that this frequency rate was 25.8% higher amongst green labour than amongst those who had always been employed in the same undertaking. Breakdown of the results of the statistical analysis is given in tabular form (referred to 1,000 workers) in relation to the professional situation (stable workers, green labour, workers taken on and released during the year, etc.) and according to the occupation.
