As the detection of pesticides has become an ecological textile monitoring project in cotton, wool and other natural fiber textiles, the requirements for the types and concentration limits of pesticides are becoming more and more stringent, so the detection of pesticides in textiles is of great significance.
In the process of planting natural fiber crops (such as cotton, flax, etc.), because of its typical intensive production of single crop, it is extremely vulnerable to the invasion of various diseases and insect pests and the survival competition of weeds. Regular use of pesticides has become a necessary means to ensure the normal growth of this kind of crops. Pesticides are also widely used in animal husbandry to control parasites on livestock. Therefore, whether it is natural cellulose fiber or natural protein fiber textile materials, there is the possibility of pesticide residues.
