The widespread use of agrochemicals, including pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, and fertilizers, is integral to modern agriculture. However, it also brings about unintentional exposure of the environment, animals, and humans to these substances, posing potential health risks. Rodenta Bioserve offers comprehensive toxicology studies for agrochemicals to assess their safety and mitigate associated risks.

Importance of Agrochemical Safety Testing

Human exposure to agrochemicals can occur during application, production, or consumption of foods containing pesticide residues. Therefore, it’s crucial to test agrochemicals for safety in relation to their intended use, as well as assess the toxicity of their residues to the environment, animals, and human health. Adhering to a ‘safety-first’ approach, we conduct rigorous toxicology studies using animal models, with results extrapolated to humans.
