The quality of water, soil, fruit and vegetables depends on many different factors. Residue analysis plays an important role in this. This 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)
- Fruit and vegetables
Additionally, we offer analyses that are aimed at organic cultivation. These comply with European regulations under which only certain substances are permitted. These analyses give you insight into whether your organic fruit or vegetables comply with the product requirements as applied by organizations such as SKAL (the Dutch Organic Control Authority).
Market regulations and requirements are constantly changing. To respond to this, we continuously develop new methods for measuring substances for which there is market demand. We also monitor publications on newly authorized crop protection products so that we can respond promptly to them. At the moment, we can check for more than 600 residue components.
Our reliable analyses enable us to identify any residues present. In doing so, we take the aim of the analysis into account:
- Periodical (statutory) checks
- Suspected exceedances
At Eurofins Agro we check for exceedances of the EU MRL (Maximum Residue Level) and the ArfD (acute reference dose) value.be present.
