MONITORING OF PESTICIDE RESIDUES IN AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS IN THE YEARS 2001 AND 2002
2003, 4 (4) p. 327-336
Agricultural Institute of Slovenia has been monitoring the pollution of agricultural products with residues of pesticides as part of professional projects in agriculture since 1987, and as part of national monitoring programme since 1999. Constant measurements are necessary because of intensive production of agricultural products and expanded use of chemical substances for plant protection. In the years 2001 and 2002 we have analysed the presence of pesticide residues in 301 samples of fruit and vegetables from eight different growing areas of Slovenia as part of national monitoring.
