Apple and pear industry:
Australian National Residue Survey results 2016-17
Every year this survey tests Australian apples and pears for a range of chemical residues and environmental contaminants. It has been operating since 1998 and is funded by the statutory levies on apples and pears.
The apple and pear programme covers random residue monitoring which ensures the industry can meet quality assurance and certification requirements for domestic and international markets.
Approximately 300 to 400 apple and pear samples are collected each year at packing sheds and wholesale markets. Samples are selected from participating producers with the aim to establish a nationwide spread of samples covering as many producers as is practicable each year.
Chemical screens are developed in consultation with the industry and take into account Australian registered chemicals, chemical residue profiles and overseas market requirements.
According to apal.org, over the past 10 years the Australian apple and pear industry has shown a high degree of compliance with Australian Standards. This demonstrates that the industry uses in-crop and post-harvest agricultural chemicals in accordance with good agricultural practices.
