Agromedicine is a relatively new concept. It deals with the interdisciplinary application of agriculture, applied chemistry and medicine to the safe global production of food with maintenance of the health conditions of agricultural workers and the general population (Almaida, 2009) In the simple definition,agromedicine is a study of human health related to agriculture in partnership with other agricultural, natural resources and health professionals, in the promotion of health and safety in agriculture, forestry and fisheries. The collaboration involves research, prevention, intervention, education, and outreach by physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals; epidemiologists; Extension and rural health educators; toxicologists; veterinarians; agricultural production specialists; agricultural engineers; family and consumer science specialists; and forestry and fisheries specialists (Hodgso and Cope, 2014). Agromedicine is needed to provide occupational and environmental health safety in agriculture. Agromedicine is a term coined in the 1950s to emphasize interdisciplinary, programmatic approaches which give a greater role for the agricultural professional based upon the equal partnership of the two disciplines (medicine and agriculture) to promote occupational and environmental health and safety in agriculture through research, prevention/intervention, education, and outreach. Agromedicine also was known as the application of medical and agricultural sciences to promote the health and safety of farm families, agricultural workers, and consumers of agricultural products.
