With an increasing global population, food security is increasingly under threat and there is a growing challenge for agriculture to produce more food, safely and more sustainably. The use of herbicides, insecticides and fungicides reduce crop losses both before and after harvest and increase crop yields. However, pesticide residues resulting from the use of plant protection products on crops may pose a risk to human health and require a legislative framework to monitor pesticide residues in food.
This application note describes the expanded capability of the LCMS-8060 to help accelerate method development workflows and support increased pesticide monitoring programs. Using the Shimadzu Pesticide MRM Library, which includes information on 766 certified reference materials, a single multi-residue LC/MS/MS method was developed for 646 pesticides.
