Max Armstrong reports on an annual report looking at pesticide residues of foods for 2021 from USDA. The testing program tested more than 10,000 samples more than 90% were fresh and processed fruits and vegetables. The program also looked at corn for grain and butter and over 99% of samples tested had residues below tolerances established by EPA. Max notes that out of 10,000 samples collected just 54 showed presumptive tolerance violations.
Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
