Paraguay starts residue monitoring pilot

The Paraguayan plant health and seed quality service, the Senave, has commenced a pilot pesticide residue monitoring project on tomatoes this month. Tomatoes are among the most consumed fruit and vegetables in the country and suffer from a large number of pests, leading to relatively heavy use of pesticides, the service says. The initial phase of the project covers random checks on samples of imported produce at two ports. The Senasa’s health, safety and organic agriculture office will test for 12 pesticide types including organochlorine, pyrethroid, carbamate and neonicotinoid insecticides, and triazole and carboxamide fungicides. By the end of the year, the Senave aims to widen the project to onions, potatoes and pome fruit.
