March Guelph Service Bulletin
In the March edition of the Guelph Services Bulletin, we will discuss pesticide residue screening and forage testing. We will also list the winners of the 2015 Milk Maker Forage Competition and upcoming trade shows where you can meet SGS representatives.
PESTICIDE RESIDUE SCREENING
SGS now offers multi residue analysis (MRA) screening for herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, and other metabolites. Using LC MSMS and GC MS technology, SGS can identify and qualify over 400 compounds in samples of food and produce.
Residual pesticide post harvest can be detected, as well as degradation products of the parent pesticide. These tests may be required for specific end users, or for global export. Click here for more information or contact us with any questions you may have.
