Data generated in the UK have indicated that pesticide residue levels can be highly variable between the individual fruit or vegetables from the same crop or lot in trade. Statistical experiments with these data showed that residues in composite samples, taken according to Codex recommendations, are unlikely to differ by more than a factor of 3–4 from the mean level in the lot. This was corroborated by results obtained from real composite samples. Many fruit or vegetables in trade are mixed… Expand
