Respiratory disease of workers harvesting grain



Respiratory disease of workers harvesting grain



Thorax 31(3): 294-302



The incidence of respiratory symptoms caused by grain dust during harvesting was surveyed in a group of 65 Lincolnshire farmers. Of these, 17 complained of respiratory distress after working on combine harvesters or near grain driers and elevators, with cough, wheezing and breathlessness, sometimes so severe as to prevent work.
