Pesticides are substances (herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, plant growth regulators etc.) used primarily for pest control that can occur in both animals and plants. Unfortunately, besides beneficial effects, their use also has many disadvantages, these being toxic to humans and environment. For this reason, it is very important to have precise and accurate analytical methods for pesticide determination and quantification. The main purpose of this paper was to provide a description of the most commonly used methods of analysis and sample preparation for qualitative and quantitative determination of pesticides. The field of agriculture was analysed as a field of use of pesticides. Thus it has been highlighted that current analysis methods heavily rely on the use of gas chromatography analysis tools and in regard to the methods of agricultural samples preparation, these are in general extraction methods. The paper presents the advantages and disadvantages of the mentioned methods, in qualitative and quantitative assessment of pesticide present in agricultural biomass.
