PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question P-006930/2020 Use of pesticides in organic farming. Food Chemistry: X Volume 5, 30 March 2020, Pesticide residues evaluation of organic crops. A critical appraisal. 3.2.
Pesticide residues occurrence in organic samples In total, 136 commercial samples labelled with organic certification, coming from 13 different countries and representative of 4 commodity groups according to the EU/SANTE/2017/11813 (SANTE/11813/2017, 2018) were included in the study. Fig. 3 shows the pesticide residues occurrence in the organic samples tested. As can be seen, no pesticide residues were detected above the LOQs achieved for the developed methods in 52% of the organic samples tested (71 samples). Authorized pesticide residues by organic production regulation were detected in 3% of the cases (4 samples), while 45% (61 samples) contained one or more non-authorized pesticides, most of them only ionic polar pesticides (27%, phosphonic acid and chlorates).

A journalistic investigation in Portugal has brought to light the presence of 23 synthetic chemicals (pesticides and one synergist) in products bearing the EU ‘organic’ logo. 113 products were investigated, between one and seven samples being taken from 44 different food products originating in various places inside and outside the EU.
In products such as rice, pasta, sesame seeds, apples, oranges, dates, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, beans, sunflower oil, goji berries, granola, wine and biscuits, the following pesticides were detected: insecticides (propoxur, bifenthrin, cis-deltamethrin, spirotetramat-enol-glucoside, carbofuran, pirimiphos methyl, acetamiprid, cypermethrin, fenvalerate and lambda cyhalothrin); fungicides (metalaxyl, metalaxyl-M, boscalid, tricyclazole, iprodione, phtalimide, imazalil, carbendazim, benomyl and thiophanate-methyl); herbicides (atrazine and glyphosate); one acaricide (pyridaben) and one synergist (piperonyl butoxide). 1. 2.
PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-008681-16 Pourquoi la Commission veut-elle des pesticides dans les produits biologiques? La Commission est actuellement en train d'établir une refonte de la politique européenne sur l'agriculture biologique.
Elle propose notamment d'instaurer des seuils de produits non autorisés — pesticides et OGM — au-dessus desquels un produit bio perdrait automatiquement sa certification. Les résidus de pesticides peuvent actuellement être retrouvés dans 15 % des produits bio. Mais ils ne proviennent pas de fraudes des agriculteurs. Elles restent très rares. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-010662-15 EU organic logo and pesticide contamination of food. Consumers today are increasingly turning to organically farmed foods.
The EU organic logo is intended to enable consumers to be confident that organic produce is free of harmful substances or other pesticides. Organic farmers are not officially permitted to employ conventional plant protection products. Despite this, inspectors have found traces of pesticides in some cases. Often, this is not due to the method of cultivation, but to the fact that organic land is located in the vicinity of conventionally farmed land, the pesticides from which are spread by the wind. 1. 2. 3.

Introduction: Pesticide Residues in Organic Food Organic food sales in the US have grown annually in double digits over the past 25 years to become a $28 billion industry as of 2012 . While organic food is still seen as a niche market, in certain product categories market share for organic is significant. For example, organic salad mix accounted for 22% of all salad mix sales in 2012 , and organic fresh fruits and vegetables command over 10% of market share .
The growth in organic food is related to a number of factors. BOISE STATE UNIVERSITY 05/02/15 Study Helps Predict Pesticide Exposure in Diet. While health-conscious individuals understand the benefits of eating fresh fruits and veggies, they may not be aware of the amount of pesticides they could be ingesting along with their vitamin C and fiber.
A new study published in the Feb. 5 edition of Environmental Health Perspectives is among the first to predict a person’s pesticide exposure based on information about their usual diet. The study was led by Cynthia Curl, an assistant professor in Boise State University’s School of Allied Health Sciences. She recently joined Boise State from the University of Washington. Cynthia Curl Curl and her colleagues analyzed the dietary exposure of nearly 4,500 people from six U.S. cities to organophosphates (OPs), the most common insecticides used on conventionally grown produce in the United States.
The researchers were able to predict each participant’s exposure to OP pesticides based on the amount and type of produce each participant typically ate and the U.S. CTVNEWS 07/02/15 Organic foods really do have less pesticides: study. A recent study at Boise State University in Idaho says that when it comes to pesticide exposure, organic foods live up to the health hype that's been surrounding them for decades.
In their study, which was published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, the research team worked with dietary data from 4,500 people from six cities in the U.S. Using the data, they were able to analyze exposure to components called organophosphates that are found in the insecticides that are widely used among conventional producers in the U.S. Participants' exposure to organophosphates was calculated using the U.S.
Department of Agriculture's measurements of pesticide residue levels in the foods in their diets and the amount of those foods they actually consumed. The research team then compared these sums to the pesticide levels obtained from urine samples of a subset of 720 participants.

Remy, M. Baert et M. Gonnissen. Il suffit apparemment d’être en Belgique, de l’autre côté de la frontière donc, pour trouver une étude un peu plus approfondie et sérieuse sur la présence ou non de résidus de pesticides dans les vins Français mais aussi Allemand, Argentin, Chilien etc… Si les Belges adorent le vin, il est à noter qu’ils se posent les mêmes questions que nous, mais que eux se donnent les moyens d’y répondre, de part le seul fait que la Belgique n’est pas un pays producteur de vin. Au niveau européen, l’Autorité Européenne de Sécurité des Aliments a fixé une LMR pour les produits alimentaires dont le vin ne fait pas partie mais le raisin de cuve oui. Le vin présentera ou non des résidus de pesticides en conséquence de l’emploi ou non de pesticides dans la vigne.

Introduction A basic aim of using chemical products for plant protection (pesticides) in farming is the quantity increase and quality improvement of agricultural crops. Pesticides are destined, inter alia, to control any kinds of pests, weeds, pathogenic organisms and other factors which cause plant damage. Therefore, the use of these substances, which have biocidal effects, is deliberately introduced on crops and get through them to people. In addition, a side effect of agrochemical treatments is their movement to the various components of the natural environment. BIO SUISSE - 2010 - Les résidus – une question sensible.
