Pesticide Residues


Agriculture chemicals including pesticides are widely used all over the world to increase efficiency, productivity, quality and variety of produce all year round. The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) defines a pesticide as ‘any substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying, attracting, repelling, or controlling any pest including unwanted species of plant or animals during the production, storage, transport, distribution, and processing of food, agricultural commodities, or animal feeds or which may be administered to animals for the control of ectoparasites’. The residue of the pesticide chemical including the derivatives is tested to ensure that food safety is maintained.
