Abstract

The role of pesticides in agriculture is crucial. Pesticides are needed to protect plants from pests and plant diseases. The opinions among farmers about more doses of pesticides used in plants will be more effective in protecting plants. The pesticides use that do not comply with the rules of use indirectly cause health complaints. This study aims to identify the correlation between the behaviour of farmers in determining the dose of pesticides with health complaints caused to farmers in Cikajang District, Garut Regency. This study uses primary data with 105 subjects and also sprayed plants using pesticides. The study design was cross sectional and the data were analysed bivariately with chi-square. This study there was no significant correlation between the behaviour of farmers to determine the dose of pesticides with health complaints that occurred (P = 0.079 with OR = 2.053 95% CI 0.936 - 4.502). Farmers behaviour in determining the dosage of pesticides to be applied in plants is not related to health complaints that occur in farmers. This is probably caused by other factors that affect health complaints.
