Organic Certification and Chemical Residues

Testing for Organic Growers and Suppliers

Organic farming is one of the fastest growing industries in Australia with a 5 % grower and 17 % export industry increase over 2016. AMAL has been working with the organic growing and certification industry since the late 1980’s and understands the requirements  placed on farmers, processors and handlers. Our residue screening has been developed to cover the persistent banned agri-chemicals of the past to the newer more complex synthetic pesticides commonly seen in the Australian agricultural industry. Our expert staff are happy to chat to you about your current concerns whether it is help with the interpretation of results, developing a testing regime or information about our fully accredited testing practices.
