Event Title

Factors that influence the degradation of pesticides in fruit trees

Session

Food Science and Technology

Description

Use of pesticides in fruitculture is an indispensable measure for protection of plants from pathogens causing diseases that have a direct impact in lowering the yield. Ever-growing need of the population for the fresh fruit is pushing producers to apply chemical measures in violation with respective instructions about carenza (degradation time). The poor service of the quality control on the side of relevant institutions for protection of consumers drives the citizens to consume products without preliminary analyses, which is causing lack of safety and potential risks for their health. In this study we have carefully monitored the apple treatment with fungicide Trifloxistrobin. Following the fungicide use we performed sampling of the fruits in the following time intervals: 1, 3, 7, 14 and 21 days after the treatment. We have examined these fruits in the lab for the purpose of identification the timing and factors’ impact in degradation of this fungicide.

Factors that influence the degradation of pesticides in fruit trees

Use of pesticides in fruitculture is an indispensable measure for protection of plants from pathogens causing diseases that have a direct impact in lowering the yield.
