AGQ Labs presented on special topics in a Post-harvest citrus Workshop last March, 13th in Martínez de la Torre (Veracruz), Mexico
The presentation was held by our Laboratory Director, Jesse Calvillo, and included a discussion on sampling in packing houses, the implications of chemical residue risks, differences in international legislation and a data exploration of the almost 30,000 citrus samples that AGQ Labs has tested for Pesticide Residues over the last several years.
This private workshop was organized by Wonderful Citrus.
