Pesticide spiromesifen in or on caneberries and cucurbit vegetables (ICS Codes: 65.020, 65.100, 67.040, 67.080)
Proposed Maximum Residue Limit: Spiromesifen (PMRL2018-58)
The objective of the notified document PMRL2018-58 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limits (MRLs) for spiromesifen that have been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).
MRL (ppm)1 Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity
5.0 Caneberries (crop subgroup 13-07A)
0.3 Cucurbit vegetables (crop group 9)2
1 ppm = parts per million
2The MRL of 0.3 ppm is proposed to replace the currently established MRL of 0.2 ppm in/on cucumbers and 0.1 ppm in/on cucurbit vegetables, except cucumbers. MRLs are proposed for each commodity included in the listed crop groupings in accordance with the Residue Chemistry Crop Groups webpage (https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/consumer-product-safety/pesticides-pest-management/public/protecting-your-health-environment/pesticides-food/residue-chemistry-crop-groups.html) in the Pesticides and Pest Management section of the Canada.ca website.
