Testing of Tricyclazole Residue in Rice

Over the past few months, Tricyclazole residues have been detected in a number of consignments of Rice. This had lead to an increased requirement for lab testing for Tricyclazole in Rice and certification of absence of Tricyclazole. The current EU MRL for Tricyclazole in rice is 1 mg/kg as per the EU Pesticides Database.

Tricyclazole testing in rice

Tricyclazole is commonly used to reduce infection of rice blast (Pyricularia oryzae) in both transplanted and direct-seeded rice. It is used to controlling many fungi, particularly Basidiomycetes and Ascomycetes, e.g. Venturia inaequalis and Podosphaera leucotricha on apples, Uncinula necator and Guignardia bidwellii on vines, Hemileia vastatrix on coffee and Cercospora spp. on peanuts, at 15-250 g/ha. It is also used on other crops like peppers, cucurbits, and bananas.

Arbro is a leading NABL ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited food testing lab offering the test for Tricyclazole and several other pesticide residues in rice an many other food products. Our lab is located in New Delhi India which is close to the rice-producing and processing belt of India. We have developed a highly sensitive, rapid and reproducible method for the detection of tricyclazole in Rice samples with a detection limit of 0.01 mg/kg.

We can carry out pre-shipment inspection and sampling of consignments even from remote locations, using or an extensive network of trained field staff,  to give you complete peace of mind. The results of the analysis are provided within 24-48 hours of the samples reaching our lab. We can also conduct other tests including non-GMO certification, heavy metals, pesticide residue, microbiology and other quality parameters as per your requirements.

  1. Hi Mayuri, we are using a validated LCMSMS method for testing tricyclazole in rice. It is a confirmatory method where as kit based methods are only screening methods.

  2. thanks saurabh, can you please give me the name of the kit which are used for screening of tricyclazole.

  3. Hi Mayuri, we are not using a kit for estimation of tricyclazole residue in rice, only the LCMSMS method. If you have a high sample volume we can offer you competitive pricing and a 48 hr turnaround time so you might not need the kit at all!!

  4. Dear All,
    How to minimise this chemical which is coming from the feild.All the farmers are using it to control the rice blast which can not be controled by the customers, detection is a very simple thing but also sugest the how to minimise the Tricyclazole which is found in the rice.

  5. Dear Madhukar, once the final product is contaminated there is not much, which can be done to reduce the levels. Some of the pesticides will naturally degrade over time when you store them and some are degraded by exposure to light or heat. I am not aware of the degradation kinetics of tricyclazole so can not make any suggestions. The only way to solve these issues is to educate the farmers and follow good agricultural practices, simple things like applying the correct concentrations at the right time can drastically reduce the residues. So if you are a buyer, spend some time and money to educate your growers, it will give you long term benefits!
