Abstract

The use of chlorpyrifos insecticide by farmers is one of the ways to increase crop productivity. However, its residues in agricultural products will result in many health problems, both acute and chronic. The residue may be reduced through some treatment. This study aimed to analyze the chlorpyrifos residues in tomatoes with and without washing. Quasi-experiment was applied in this study. Tomatoes samples were obtained from the Village of Jennetallasa, Rumbia, Jeneponto Regency. Chlorpyrifos analysis using gas chromatography method. The results showed that the residue levels of the chlorpyrifos with washing using piped water, mountains water, and without washing are 0.006 mg/kg, 0.016 mg/kg, 0.050 mg/kg respectively. The conclusions of this study are the levels of residues in washed tomatoes were lower than unwashed.
