ELISA screening method (suitable analytical technique with specificity, sensitivity and simplicity) was used to monitor the TCS accumulation in agricultural farmland soil and Garden Parsley (Petroselinum Crispum var. neapolitanum) roots and leafs. Residues of TCs, used in veterinary and human medicine, end up in the agricultural farmlands due to the common practice of land application of manure. These excreted TCs, from treated animals, are quite persistent in soil and can accumulate with repeated manure application and it can lead to an increase of the TCs concentration in cultivated vegetables used as human food. The main goal of this study is to study the TCs accumulation in the soil and cultivated Petroselinum crispum var. neapolitanum-radix and leafs. The samples were taken from an agricultural farmland in NW-Romania.
