Hygienic normalization of pesticide residues and their tolerance levels in foodstuffs in the U.S.S.R.
In the thirties, just after the mass application of pesticides for pests and plant disease control began, their application in the Soviet Union was regulated. The regulation applied not only to application conditions but to toxicant contents in foodstuffs as well; this regulation primarily concerned arsenic and fluorine compounds. As the assortment of formulations and the scale of their usage in agriculture widened the methods of pesticide evaluations were improved and the conditions of their safe application were determined more accurately.
