Sažetak
Pesticides are used with the aim to control insects, diseases, fungi and other pests. Along with the benefits there are potential effects from trace amounts of residues remaining on fruit and vegetables. The objective of this study was to check for compliance with the maximum residue levels in fruit and vegetables from Kvarner region of Croatia. 14 sorts of vegetables and 6 sorts of fruits (n=263) randomly selected from market, were analysed for organochlorine, organophosphorus and fungicide residues. Multi residue analysis using GC/NPD, GC/ECD and spectrophotometric methods were performed. The results of this study indicated that though all the commodities were contaminated with pesticides, the levels were low and residues above MRL were found only in 1.52 % of samples. All other levels were below the criteria for maximum residue limits established by Croatia and EU.
