Pesticides are used extensively in agriculture to improve yield capacity and aesthetic quality. But pesticide usage in both the organic and conventional farming industry of fruits and vegetables must comply with established USDA regulations.
Our patented hand-held AgMeter™ technology has been engineered to test for these legal tolerances and advise its users what levels of pesticide are present on their food in a quick, "dry-chemistry" method. Our primary product will initially test for Carbaryl, which is used extensively on spinach. Customized versions of our AgMeter™ will test for other pesticides and commodities.
Federal border inspectors, State and local agriculture Inspectors, farmers, retailers and the general public have all voiced a strong interest in the need for our product.
