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 ( in the Pesticides and Pest Management section of the website.
