Abstract

The agricultural sector encompasses a large variety of activities that has seen a number of major changes in recent years. These changes, along with a distinctive rural life and work related problems may considerably influence stress levels in farming communities. This article describes some of the work-related psychosocial issues in the agriculture sector, and provides an overview into how these psychosocial issues may affect the physical and mental health of farmers and agriculture workers. Finally, strategies and measures for tackling psychosocial issues in this sector are presented.
