Analysis in RPTL During Last Five Years 2017-18 to 2021-22


The main function of Centralized Coding Cell is to receive pesticide samples viz., weedicides, fungicides, insecticides, plant growth regulators as per Insecticide Act from notified Insecticide inspectors of states and also from notified Central Insecticide Inspectors.The samples received are packed in separate containers, as per guideline set for packaging under Insecticide Act 1968 and are given secret Code Numbers based on the serial number of the samples. The tightly packed samples in carton boxes are then sent to Regional Pesticide Testing Laboratories at Chandigarh and Kanpur for analysis.Once the analysis reports are received, the samples are decoded and the details of the analysis results shall be fair typed in reports and shall be dispatched to the respective insecticide inspectors.
