Monitoring of insecticide residues in bovine milk from Trivandrum region






Journal of Environmental Biology 14(3): 225-229

Monitoring of insecticide residues in bovine milk from Trivandrum region

Monitoring of organochlorine residues in bovine milk collected from 23 Panchayaths of Trivandrum District of Kerala revealed that samples collected from all the Panchayaths contained residues of HCH. Among the 32 Panchayaths the samples from 10 Panchayaths contained gamma HCH residues above the MRL. The highest level of contamination was seen in Kanjiramkulam Panchayath where gamma HCH level was seven times above the MRL.
