Abstract

The impact of horticultural agriculture on the welfare of farmers and the surrounding community is quite large, either directly or indirectly. Horticultural agriculture which is an agribusiness development in Lampung Province wich has horticultural centers, one of which is in Tanggamus District. However, the negative impact that is feared is pesticide poisoning. At this time in the world it is estimated that there are 1-5 million cases of pesticide poisoning, 80% of which are in developing countries.The purpose of this study was to determine the determinant factors that influence the occurrence of pesticide poisoning in one of the horticultural agricultural centers in Gisting District, Tanggamus Regency.The research design was cross sectional to determine pesticide exposure. With a total of 112 farmers' blood samples (56 cases and 56 controls) and Cholinestrase levels were examined to describe the tendency of poisoning and not poisoning. Data collection techniques and sources using questionnaires and blood sampling of farmers. Data processing using software applications by data, univariate and bivariate.The results of this study describe the determinants that affect the level of Cholinestrase, namely only the farmer's knowledge variable (p value = 0.019), while the other determinants are not related such as age, gender, education, income, service, attitude, behavior, temperature, humidity. The main recommendation is to ignore the spraying time, which is 16.00-17.00.
