USDA posts latest PDP residue figures

US pesticide residue monitoring under the USDA's Pesticide Data Program (PDP) found that tolerances were exceeded in 0.53% of the 11,893 food samples tested in 2012. That compares with a 0.27% violation rate in 2011 (Agrow No 659, p 16). Residues for which no tolerance had been established were found in 4.3% of samples, compared with 3.4% a year earlier.
