The importance of Pesticide Testing
If you are using pesticides, you need to test your harvest to see whether your withholding period is sufficient. As a result of the wide range of pesticides used around the world, regions have diverse Pesticide Residue regulations. For South Africa, Qure suggests testing for pesticides referred to in the African Standard for African Traditional Medicine (ATM) and The South African Foodstuffs Act. Where discrepancies between the two are found, ATM is given precedence as it specifically applies to herbal medicines.
Qure’s standard multi-residue analysis tests for over 100 different pesticides. Enquire for specific tests.
