Chemical Residue Analysis

 IK Caldwell offer a range of chemical residue testing for the horticultural industry. Many quality assurance programs such as Freshcare require that fruit and dipping water be tested for the presence of harmful residues and that maximum residue limits (MRL's) are not exceeded.

IK Caldwell has access to a lab that offers quality results with a quick turnaround time. Below is a list of standard tests available, however if you require an analysis not listed below please contact us.

We only use a NATA accredited laboratory
