Work related asthma and rhinitis are frequent diseases with a significant morbidity and a social and economic impact. Farmers are highly exposed to various inhaled agents such as organic or inorganic dust, endotoxin, micro-organisms, pollen, mites, moulds, animal danders and pesticides, inducing rhinitis, asthma, chronic bronchitis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis and organic dust toxic syndrome. Work related respiratory symptoms are frequent in crop farmers. Allergic rhinitis and respiratory symptoms in fruit farmers are mainly related to pollen allergy, especially gramineae pollen. They can also be related to the use of pesticides or exposure to mites .
