Abstract


The study was carried out to investigate the pesticide residue (OP & CB) of vegetables in Lamjung, Tanahun, Chitwan, Dhading and Kavre districts of Nepal by RBPR method. The experiment was conducted in the Rapid Pesticides Residue Analysis (RPRA) Laboratory of Kalimati, Kathmandu under Plant Protection Directorate, Ministry of Agriculture Development. Total 37 vegetable samples were collected between March-April and analyzed by RBPR procedure develop by TARI; Lamjung (10), Tanahun (7), Chitwan (9), Dhading (7) and Kavre (4). Out of 37 samples analyzed, all samples were found in an acceptable limit of consumption i.e. Green level (<35%). After the establishment of RPRA lab, pesticide residue of Carbamate and Organophosphate is reduced. Either the vegetables grower used other pesticide than Carbamate and Organophosphate or they reduce the level of pesticide used.
