Abstract

The objective of this study is to estimate the Abamectin residues pesticide in Green pepper and Courgette growing under Greenhouse conditions. The HPLC-UV instrument is used and the wavelength to determinate the pesticide residues in the vegetable samples is 210 nm. The results showed high values in the Abamectin pesticide residues quantity; is varied from 4.11 to 1.78 mg/kg for Courgettte and Green pepper, respectively. In addition, the results suggest that the estimated daily intake (EDI) is much higher than the acceptable daily intake (ADI) level. Thus, the detected levels signify that the EDI of the Abamectin residues in the both vegetable samples may lead to serious public health problems for the consumers and the values of the Health risk index (HRI) confirmed these results. Abamectin is a highly toxic material, however most formulated products containing Abamectin are of low toxicity to mammals. Emulsifiable concentrate formulations may cause moderate eye irritation and mild skin irritation. Symptoms of poisoning observed in laboratory animals include pupil dilation, vomiting, convulsions and/or tremors, and coma. Overall, the results of this study proved high human health risk for the consumers of these vegetables samples contaminated by Abamectin pesticides residues.
