    Aldicarb residues detection in ginger

    A few days ago, CCTV reported on the problem of the cultivation of ginger, a highly toxic pesticide, Shennongdan, in Shandong and other places, and immediately caused widespread concern in society. In order to maintain the quality of agricultural products, protect consumers' health and safety, and strengthen the detection of pesticide residues such as aldicarb in agricultural products, it will become a necessary measure.
    According to the mandatory standard“National food safety standard-- Maximum residue limits for pesticides in food” (GB 2763-2016), ginger is a root-stem vegetable, and the large residue limit of aldicarb is 0.03mg/kg; the corresponding detection method is " Pesticide multiresidue sceen methods for determination of organophosphorus pesticides,organochlorine pesticides,pyrethroid pesticides and carbamate pesticedes in vegetables and fruits” (NY/T 761-2008).

    Pony Testing international group has obtained the national laboratory qualification of aldicarb.If you have any related needs for aldicarb residues detection such as ginger and other agricultural products, please contact us.

    The main ingredient of Shennongdan is a highly toxic pesticide called aldicarb. Aldicarb, scientific name O-(methylcarbamoyl)-2-methyl-2-thiopropanal oxime, is very toxic, and 50 mg can cause a 50 kg person to die. According to the pesticide registration of the Ministry of Agriculture, Shennong Dan can only be used on cotton, tobacco, rose, peanuts, sweet potatoes, and there are strict restrictions on the amount of medication, the number of medications, and the method of administration. In this abuse of Shennongdan pesticides, aldicarb was not only illegally used in ginger cultivation, but also used excessively, and the interval was greatly shortened, which inevitably led to the risk of excessive pesticide residues.
