The quality of water, soil, fruit and vegetables depends on many different factors. Residues play an important role in this. Residue analysis identifies any active substances from crop protection products that may still be present. At Eurofins Agro, we offer separate residue analyses for:

  • Water (surface water, drinking water, horticultural water)
  • Soil
  • Fruit and vegetables

New methods

Market regulations and requirements are constantly changing. We continuously develop new methods for measuring substances for which there is market demand. We also monitor publications on newly authorised crop protection products so that we can respond promptly to these. 

Reasons for performing residue analysis may be:

  • Periodical (statutory) checks
  • Monitoring
  • Certification
  • Suspected exceedances

At Eurofins Agro, we also check for exceedances of the EU MRL (Maximum Residue Level) and the ArfD (acute reference dose) value.
