  • The tolerance of residues of Pyridate is applied to the following food commodities such as lentils, dry, seed, and rapeseed subgroup 20A;
  • The established levels of this pesticide in or on lentils, dry, seed is 0.4 ppm and rapeseed subgroup 20A is 0.05 ppm;
  • Dietary exposure and risk assessments studies ensure the safety of infants and the general population;
  • Short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of tolerance on these food products is unlikely to pose a health risk to consumers.
