Pesticide Residues and Organic Production

  title={Pesticide Residues and Organic Production},
  author={O. Tiryaki},
This study focused on studies of pesticide residues in organic product. With increasing health and environmental awareness, organic farming has become an integral part of the agricultural policy in many countries. It is the less harmful to human and environment. The target of organic farm is not high quantity of production, but is the high quality. The market value of organic products in Europa was 45 billion € in 2010 and was 27.5 million $ in Turkey in 2009. Organic foods include less… Expand
Organic farming: Does it contribute to contaminant-free produce and ensure food safety?
The present review critically addresses the impact of organic farming on hidden risks due to the use of composts as the amendment resources that enhance the phytoaccumulation and trophic transfer of pollutants, the functional diversity of the ecosystems, and poor harmonization among the policies and regulations in different countries for organic farming.

A preliminary study of simultaneous veterinary drug and pesticide residues in eggs produced in organic and cage-free alternative systems using LC–MS/MS
Findings indicate that non-conformities were found even with a limited number of samples, impacting the confidence in the quality of organic and cage-free alternative systems in egg production, and demonstrated that chemical food safety might be at risk. Expand
Compliance of small-scale Organic Tea Farmers with Organic Standards: A Study in Sri Lanka
Purpose: Authenticity of organic tea has been questioned recently due to some evidence of contaminated organic tea in the market. Although producers’ compliance with organic standards (OS) is aExpand
Roundup®, but Not Roundup-Ready® Corn, Increases Mortality of Drosophila melanogaster
While neither lifespan nor reproductive behaviors were affected by HT corn, addition of Roundup® increased mortality with an LC50 of 7.1 g/L for males and 11.4 g/l for females after 2 days of exposure, suggesting Drosophila are an excellent model system for future studies about genetic and biochemical mechanisms of glyphosate toxicity.

Pesticides Residues and Microbial Contamination of Tomatoes Produced and Consumed in Kenya


Pesticide residues in conventional, integrated pest management (IPM)-grown and organic foods: insights from three US data sets
Comparison of specific residues on specific crops found that residue concentrations in organic samples were consistently lower than in the other two categories, across all three data sets. Expand
The fate of pesticide in the environment.
Pesticides are an essential element of agriculture production. Increased use of pesticides has greatly aided agricultural production, decreased losses of stored grains, and has generally improvedExpand
General Aspects about Pesticides Residues in Fruits and Short Description of Organic Farming versus Conventional Farming
For the reason of reducing the loss and maintain the quality of fruits and vegetables harvest, pesticides are used to destroy pests and prevent diseases. But, the use of pesticides during productionExpand
Chemical safety of conventionally and organically produced foodstuffs: A tentative comparison under Belgian conditions
This paper goes through the chemical risks able to affect the organic and the conventional agro-food products. For each type of contaminant a tentative assessment has been made in considering notExpand
Human consumption of agricultural toxicants from organic and conventional food
Over the past 60 years both the number of agricultural toxicants in use and rates of toxin-related diseases have increased dramatically, and countless studies attest to a link between the two. WhileExpand
Analysis of pesticide residues in strawberries and soils by GC-MS/MS, LC-MS/MS and two-dimensional GC-time-of-flight MS comparing organic and integrated pest management farming
This study analysed 22 strawberry and soil samples after their collection over the course of 2 years to compare the residue profiles from organic farming with integrated pest management practices in Portugal, providing satisfactory confirmation of both similarly positive and negative findings.

Isolation of four heat shock protein cDNAs from grapefruit peel tissue and characterization of their expression in response to heat and chilling temperature stresses
The study explored the correlation between the expression and persistence of various HSP cDNAs in grapefruit peel tissue during cold storage and the acquisition of chilling tolerance, and the results suggest that HSPs may play a general role in protecting plant cells under both high- and low-temperature stresses.
