When using pesticides, they not only get into the plant but also into the ground. Plant protection substances are primarily used to protect the plant against any damage, which also means protecting the harvest. A second use is in transportation systems where, for example, herbicides are used to free the railways from weeds. And of course the pesticides not only get on the plants but also into the surrounding soil. You can analyse them a long time after use In accordance with their reduction times. The "old" pesticides have especially long reduction times. So it can be possible to detect the pesticides years after use. With this test we can screen nearly 500 substances.
