I grow different varieties of mandarins, and my customer requires a residue test on each variety. I’m looking at arranging to have a composite residue test undertaken. Does Freshcare accept composite residue test results?
Freshcare does accept composite residue test results, providing the test is a broad spectrum screen and has been conducted by an appropriate NATA – accredited laboratory.
Composite residue testing is the testing of more than one product (of the same crop type), per residue test. Results are then distributed by the number of products included in the composite test. If a violation occurs on a composite test, individual product testing will then be required.
Please note that customer specific requirements may differ, and approval for composite testing may be required from individual customers.
