Test Description

This Fapas proficiency test is ideal to evaluate your testing ability for a range of pesticides in ginger. The test requires identification and quantification of the analytes, and is a realistic test of your screening and quantitative analysis of pesticides. 

Ginger is consumed globally both as fresh produce and as an ingredient within many foodstuffs, and so it is important to detect any contaminated material in order to minimise the risk to consumers. Pesticides are used extensively in agriculture in order to improve yields, but must be used properly to reduce any residues on the final crop. As a result, most countries now have an extensive monitoring scheme for pesticide residues written into their legislation.

There are more than 1000 compounds used worldwide as pesticides or plant protection products. When used properly, according to good agricultural practice, any residues can be expected to be below maximum residue limits. The Fapas pesticide residues proficiency tests are based on the EU monitoring list and associated MRLs but are widely applicable to most geographic areas.
