Posted By: Trace One

On July 13, 2021, the Health Canada’s Pesticides Management Regulatory Agency proposed to establish maximum residue limits (MRLs) for mandipropamid (PMRL2021-23) and benzovindiflupyr (PMRL2021-24). The proposed MRLs for mandipropamid and Benzovindiflupyr in Canada are equal to the corresponding American tolerances as listed in the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations, 40 CFR Part 180, by pesticide.

The scope of the document is herein summarized:

  • MRL for Benzovindiflupyr is proposed at 0.08ppm for Sugar beetroots.
  • MRL for Mandipropamid is proposed at 15ppm Citrus oil and 0.5ppm Citrus fruits (crop group 10) (revised).
  • Residues pose no health risk associated with human health.
  • The established MRL will be legally in effect as of the date that it is entered into the Maximum Residue Limit Database.

The draft consultation is open for public comments for 75 days.
