Studies were undertaken to investigate the effect of pesticides on workers employed in grape gardens of Andhra Pradesh. The data obtained on the reproductive performance showed an increase in the incidence of abortions and stillbirths. Out of 12 employed couples in grape gardens, 2 were found to be sterile. Cytogenetic studies revealed a significant increase in chromatid breaks and gaps in chromosomes of peripheral blood in workers exposed to pesticides. In addition, a high frequency of satellite associations was recorded in these workers.
