Pesticide tracking

SHANGHAI will improve its quality and safety tracking system of farm products to prevent food scares and pesticide poisoning cases, the Shanghai Agricultural Commission said yesterday. Sun Lei, commission director, said the tracking system coverage rate should rise from 61.5 percent now to 90 percent by 2015. According to Sun, the tracking system enables inspectors to know when pesticides are dusted on vegetables, how much pesticide is sprayed and what kind of pesticide is being used by farmers. The commission also said it will strengthen check-ups of pesticide residue, especially in green vegetables.
