Posted by ahila on April 30th, 2018

Global Residue Testing Market :Agriculture residue is a word which is used to describe the small traces of veterinary and agricultural chemicals, their breakdown products which remain inside or outside of the agricultural product. In other words, it is a contaminant which shows negative effects on the health and safety of the consumers. Usually, residues include traces of heavy metals, mycotoxins, micro-organisms, among others. Residue testing is performed in order to determine whether the agro products complies with Minimum residue limits (MRL) or Maximum levels (ML) for chemical and metal residues and to check whether the soils contain any organochlorine insecticides residues such as DDT and dieldrin, among others.

Stringent regulations to test the hazardous elements, rising awareness and health concerns are enabling accelerate the growth of the Global residue testing market. Furthermore, technological advancements in testing, growing international trade for the food materials, the presence of a large number of untapped markets in emerging regions and increasing in sustainable food production are also boosting the growth of the residue testing market globally. However, strict food production regulations, unavailability of food control infrastructure and resources, lack of awareness about the safety regulations are expected to hinder the growth of the residue testing market.
