Pesticide glufosinate-ammonium in or on various commodities (ICS Codes: 65.020, 65.100, 67.040, 67.080, 67.200)
Proposed Maximum Residue Limit: Glufosinate‑Ammonium (PMRL2020-07). Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 6 and 7
The objective of the notified document PMRL2020-07 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limits (MRLs for glufosinate-ammonium that have been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).
MRL (ppm)1 Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity
0.5 Tree nuts (crop group 14-11)2; olives3
0.3 Stone fruits (crop group 12-09)4
0.05 Carrot roots
1 ppm = parts per million
2 Replaces the currently established MRL of 0.1 ppm for tree nuts (crop group 14-11).
3 Replaces the currently established MRL of 0.1 ppm for olives.
4 Replaces the currently established MRL of 0.2 ppm for stone fruits (crop group 12-09). The currently established MRL of 0.25 ppm for dried prune plums will be removed as residues will be covered under the 0.3 ppm MRL for stone fruits (crop group 12-09).
An MRL is 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.
