or labors including equal number of males and females. Findings revealed that there were

actual health problems reported in paddy cultivation.Though there are no tested evidences to
prove that reported illnesses were due to participation in paddy cultivation, yet the study provides
an account of gender wise health problems reported by farmers in paddy cultivation.
