Study on universal cleaning solution in removing blended pesticide residues in Chinese cabbage

  Food safety problems caused by pesticide residues in vegetables have become one of the top issues of public interest. In order to find an effective method of removing pesticide residues in vegetables, Chinese cabbages were processed as simulated pesticide pollution using three types of pesticides, namely; organophosphorus pesticide, organochlorine pesticide and pyrethroid pesticides. The polluted Chinese...

Acute toxicity of Lepidagathis alopecuriodes (Vahl) to Heterobranchus bidorsalis fingerlings

  The acute toxicity of L. alopecuriodes to H. bidorsalis fingerlings of mean body weight, 1.99  0.38g and total length 6.32  0.93cm was assessed in a renewal bioassay for 96 h. Five graded concentrations of L. alopecuriodes were prepared as 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and 2.25mg/L and a control experiment (0.00 mg/L).  There were no significant variations observed in the water...

Development of method for residue analysis of three herbicides in the soil by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)

  Contamination of soil and water resources by herbicides is an increasing environmental concern. Soil plays an important role in agro-ecosystem and the environment, but information for analysis of herbicides residue in the soil can be very difficult to come by. Laboratory experiment was conducted to simplify analytical methods of the residue of paraquat, glyphosate, and glufosinate-ammonium in soil through...
