Aggregated USDA Pesticide Data 1992-2012

For each commodity, data were aggregated from all years the commodity was included in the USDA PDP.

The total number of samples collected for each commodity is specified, along with the number of samples with any pesticide detections.

For pesticide detections that exceed the safety level established by the EPA (specific to commodity and year) the number of samples is specified, along with the number which were grown outside the United States.

The percentage of samples over the EPA tolerance limit to total samples tested is displayed on the right.

Commodities are listed in descending order with respect to the percent over the EPA tolerance.
