180 day lab test of Avid, Forbid, Floramite, Eagle 20

Discussion in 'Nutrients and Fertilizers' started by treebark1950, Jul 23, 2012.

  1. Whats up farmers?

    I have been wondering how long these pesticides stay in the plant and do they really show up when you get something lab tested...

    Well 180 ish days ago I sprayed 7 Cuts with the Recommended dose of:

    Forbid 4F
    Avid
    Floramite
    Eagle 20

    (No I didn't have mites or PM)

    Not at the same time, but over the course of 2 weeks...

    They Vegged for another 9-10 weeks, then on in the flower room they went..

    Well last week after a few week cure it was time to get the samples tested...

    I got them tested by Ca Testing Authority...

    All 7 samples tested the same...

    Avid 8ppm
    Floramite 5ppm

    Forbid and Eagle 20 free!
    I was told by them that an acceptable amount is 1ppm for human consumption.

    Any other farmers use these products and actually get it tested?

    I was told by CTA, that these pesticides are designed for Ag use ONLY and the photosynthesis of the sun helps to break down these systemic products quicker.

    I am doing this exact same test again, but I'm putting some Mom's outside for 1.5 months to veg to see if the sun does break down the bad stuff...

    I used to use Floramite when I got new clones but now no more...

    Just thought I'd share my findings!

    Dang even logic rolled up in here...:cool:
     

  9. That's what I was always told as well but I wanted to find out first hand.

    Thanks. Well I have been smoking it, just to my self, I wanted to see if I could feel a difference in the smoke...The other thing I am going to do is do an extraction from the Buds that I got tested and see if the Avid and Floramite show up in that test as well.

    No problem. I am going to do a test and spray forbid on one plant before day 1 of flower and see if in the 9 week cycle will it test clean!

    Wow I feel honored to have the man himself stop by! I just want farmers to be able to make informed decisions when it comes to bugs!

  14. Thanks! I felt it was my duty to find out first hand what can be used safely since I care about my patients!!

    I do plan on doing more testing in the future for sure.

    when using avid how many ml per gallon should b used...
     
    MakinGoo and delae632 like this.
  16. IMHO none. If Avid or floramite show up at all after that amount of time then I don't think it is safe to use at all for our indoor applications...but I am curious!
