The use of pesticide residue in Langra variety of mango by farmers of local area was studied. The pesticides residual loads assessments were seen in the soil and orchard during the cultivation. The farmers used the pesticide viz. Dichlorovos, Phorate, Diazinone, Fenitrothion, Malathion, Chlorpyrifos and Ethion to obtain high production. Three samples of Langra variety were collected from different orchards of Modinagar region. About 1 kg sample of each field (orchard) was sealed in polythene bag and there after cleaning the pulp it was analysed by GCMS. The validity was checked by standard solution. The entire sample was found under the MRLs limit recommended by FSSAI. The over use of chemicals was seen bad effect on the health of community. The present study concluded that the regular monitoring is must for the public health.
