Feed samples analysed by the Danish Plant Directory

The Danish Plant Directory controls Danish-produced cereals for feeding for pesticide residues. During the last 3 years, 165 samples (104 samples in 2007, 30 in 2008, and 31 in 2009) have been analysed for 25 pesticides, of which 15 were the most commonly applied pesticides on Danish cereals. In 2008 and 2009 chlormequat, mepiquat and glyphosat were added to the list. The samples were collected at farmers and companies. The cereals analysed were wheat, barley, oat, rye, and triticale. The pesticides analysed are shown in Table 3 7.

None of the samples analysed in the three-year period contained residues above the MRLs. Out of the 31 samples analysed in 2009, 10 samples contained residues (32%). Table 3 8 shows the cereal samples from 2009 that contained pesticide residues, all below MRL.

In 2008, 15 out of 30 samples (50%) contained pesticide residues. The pesticides were primarily chlormequat (9 samples) and glyphosate (6 samples) found in triticale, barley and wheat. In addition to this, one oat sample contained residues of tebuconazole, and fluroxpyr was found in a barley sample.
