Abstract

In modern agricultural technology agrochemicals are inevitable inputs but its indiscriminate use in agriculture has serious repercussions on the farmers’ health and the environmental. The Kullu district in Himachal Pradesh was chosen purposively for the study. The secondary data has been used for the year 2006 and primary data was collected for the year 2017 from 100 farmers by using pre-tested schedule. From the last decades, intensification of the agriculture has led to extensive use of agro-chemicals by the farmers especially in cash crops like apple and vegetable crops. Most of the farmers using agro-chemicals without using the protective equipment and have its direct exposure. The study concluded that agro-chemicals exposure is more in recent time than the earlier. The practice of indiscriminate agro-chemicals is due to inferior quality, resistance developed by the pest and the effect of climate change. Therefore, there is a need to enhance and provide depth knowledge to the farmers to strengthen their understanding regarding the use of agro-chemicals which have direct or indirect impact on human health and environment.
