SCOPE OF TEST
Pesticides and other chemicals used in the cultivation of various crops are highly pervasive. Outdoor crops and indoor cultivation facilities without proper air scrubbing equipment are at risk of becoming contaminated if neighboring agricultural or landscaping operations are using any banned substances.
Why it matters
While many of these substances have been deemed safe for consumption by the FDA, there are risks associated with heating, combusting, and inhaling certain chemicals. Screening products for these substances helps ensure consumer safety.
