SGS Expands its Scope of Pesticide Services
Pesticides are a vital part of the agricultural industry, assisting growers in meeting world food demands. However, due to negative impacts on human and animal health, as well as ecological effects of pesticides and contaminants, it is not desirable to find residues of pesticides in food or feed after it is harvested and headed for human or animal consumption.
SGS Brookings continues expanding its scope of services in order to meet the growing demand for independent pesticide residue testing.
SGS specializes in measuring pesticides in a variety of agricultural matrices, including leaf tissue and soil that may have problems caused by the use of an incorrect product, chemical drift, or by environmental changes that have impacted plant reaction.
SGS offers individual or package testing of common pesticides, including plant growth regulators, soil applied or pre-emergent herbicides, sulfonylureas, imidazolinones, Glyphosate, Glufosinate, and Flumioxazin pesticides. Additional tests are also available.
Our scientists can offer guidance on testing your products to ensure compliance with United States FDA pesticide tolerances, Codex Alimentarius MRLs, Japanese Positive List Pesticides, and other pesticide regulations.
SGS is an ISO17025 accredited scientific laboratory offering a broad range of testing solutions on feed, grain, food, plants, co-products, and seed. Our scientists utilize the latest in technology to deliver fast, accurate, and independent verifications.
