The residual amount of 160 kinds of pesticide for multi-analysis methods were analyzed in Baechu cabbages throughout the year by GC/MS. We investigated the 160 kinds of pesticide residues in commercial Baechu cabbages monthly from October 2007 to September 2008. Over the 12 months, the residues were detected in the Baechu cabbages harvested and distributed only in July, August, October and November. The residual amounts were 0.01 ppm Bifenthrin, 0.04 ppm Chlorfenapyr, and 0.03 ppm Bifenthrin in
