Pesticide pyrethrins in or on various commodities (ICS: 65.020, 65.100, 67.040, 67.080)

Proposed Maximum Residue Limit: Pyrethrins (PMRL2020-35). Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 5 and 6

The objective of the notified document PMRL2020-35 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limits (MRLs) for pyrethrins that have been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).

MRL (ppm)1 Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity

1.0 Blueberries2

0.15 Low growing berries (crop subgroup 13-07G, except lowbush blueberries)3

1 ppm = parts per million

2 The established MRL of 1.0 ppm for blueberries is proposed to be revised to "highbush blueberries" and "lowbush blueberries" to reflect current terminology.

3 Lowbush blueberries are excluded from this MRL action as a 1.0 ppm MRL is already established for this commodity.

An MRL is 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.
