The Pesticide Residue Lab tests for the presence of herbicide, insecticide, rodenticide, and fungicide residue in plants, fruits, vegetables soil, water, and milk products. These samples are submitted when department inspectors suspect there may be a misuse of the application of a pesticide. The Pesticide Formulation Lab tests herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides to ensure that the listing of active ingredients and their concentrations are correct and in compliance with state labeling laws.
