Test Description

To ensure a high quality crop, suppliers regularly use pesticides to reduce disease and pests within their crop. Through good farming practises the levels of pesticides passed to the consumer is low and manageable below safe levels. Suppliers may not always be utilising good farming practise, so it is important to ensure high quality testing to identify any high levels of various pesticides being passed to consumers.
