POLESE, L. et al. Prochloraz residue levels in ginger submitted to Sportak 450 CE" postharvest treatment. Eclet. Quím. [online]. 2006, vol.31, n.2, pp. 59-62. ISSN 0100-4670. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-46702006000200009.
A preliminary study was conducted to determine the residue levels of prochloraz in ginger samples treated with Sportak 450 CE® (prochloraz as active ingredient) under laboratory conditions and cold-storage for 15 days at 10°C and 89% RH. Sampling was carried out at 10 and 15 days after Sportak 450 CE® dip treatment (450 and 900 µg mL-1). Pesticide residues were determined by GCECD. During the study, residue levels in ginger ranged between 3.6 and 10.6 mg Kg-1 for prochloraz.
