Abstract Distribution by number according to the intensity of physical labour and to age groups from 18 to 60 years and over 60 years was determined on the basis of physiological needs of energy and foodstuffs for agricultural workers during intensive field work. Energy consumptions were measured for 12 kinds of agricultural activities. Requirements for protective occupational nutrition and drinking regimes were formulated for green-houses. Two proposed diets for workers exposed to organophosphorus or organochlorine pesticides have been published by the Bulgarian Ministry of Health in the Official Bulletin, Nos. 9 and 10, 1985.
