To detect the pesticide residue that are present in the vegetables. The aim of this study is to asses the level of pesticide residue in commonly consumed vegetable and green leafy vegetables in Hyderabad.Vegetable such as tomato and green leafy vegetables such as spinach and curry leafs were analyzed for the presence of pesticides by using QUECHERS method (easy cheap effective rugged and safe). Multi residue extraction followed by GC-ECD(electron capture detector) LC-MS/MS method. For the present project random sampling was done from the various markets in the twin cities of Hyderabad, (gudi malkapur, rythu bazar). Depending upon the nature of the vegetation (size, shape, etc.), samples were mixed and enclosed.The addition of a small sachet of silica gel to the envelope helps to reduce the moisture content of the system. However, samples were provided to the analytical laboratory to check for possible coextractives, which could interfere with the analysis. Only a few amount of pesticide can be permissible it shouldn’t cross its residual levels. The sample were contaminated with more than 6 pesticide such as Acetamiprid, chlorantraniliprole,Acephate methamidophos, bifenthrin,alfa cypermethrin etc and organic compost is prepared to promote kitchen gardening.
