Pesticide Analysis

Pesticides are being used today to control a variety of insects, weeds and plant diseases. Some of these same pesticides can act as toxins to plants, animals and humans when found in sufficient concentrations as residues. Residues can be found in plant materials, water, soil, meat and dairy products.
