This study was designed to determine the incidence of hospitalizations and emergency room visits resulting from exposure to chemicals used in agriculture which occurred recently within a 21- county area of central Nebraska. Forty-eight cases were identified, which translated into an annual incidence rate of 1.35 cases per 10, 000 population. Anhydrous ammonia was the chemical most frequently cited as responsible for exposures.
