Pesticide glyphosate in or on various commodities (ICS Codes: 65.020, 65.100, 67.040, 67.060)

Proposed Maximum Residue Limit: Glyphosate (PMRL2021-10). Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 7

The objective of the notified document PMRL2021-10 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limits (MRLs) for glyphosate that have been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).

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

352                     Groats/rolled oats, oat bran

152,3,5               Barley bran, dry adzuki beans, dry beans, dry blackeyed peas, dry broad beans, dry catjang seeds, dry chickpeas, dry cowpea seeds, dry guar seeds, dry kidney beans, dry lablab beans, dry lima beans, dry moth beans, dry mung beans, dry navy beans, dry pink beans, dry pinto beans, dry rice beans, dry southern peas, dry tepary beans, dry urd beans, grain lupin, pearled barley, wheat bran, wheat germ

104,5                  Dry field peas, dry lentils, dry pigeon peas

1.0                Tree nuts (crop group 14-11)

1 ppm = parts per million

2 The new MRLs of 35 ppm in/on groats/rolled oats and oat bran, as well as 15 ppm in/on barley bran, pearled barley, wheat bran and wheat germ, will replace the currently established MRLs in/on "oat, milling fractions (except flour)", "barley milling fractions (except flour)" and "wheat milling fractions (except flour)". Flour will no longer be explicitly mentioned in the database, as it is covered by the MRLs in/on the respective raw agricultural commodities (RACs) of oats, barley and wheat.

3 Given that a new MRL of 15 ppm is recommended for all commodities of crop subgroup 6C, except soybeans, dry lentils, dry field peas and dry pigeon peas, the historical term "beans" originally covered at 4.0 ppm will be removed from the database. It is noted that the following commodities are considered as beans: grain lupin, dry blackeyed peas, dry catjang seeds, dry cowpea seeds and dry southern peas. Chickpeas can be considered as beans or peas, but the MRL is set at the highest value between the two, in this case beans at 15 ppm.

4 Given that a new MRL of 10 ppm is recommended for dry field peas and dry pigeon peas, the historical term "peas" covered at 5.0 ppm will be removed from the database. It is noted that lentils are considered as peas, and therefore, the MRL of 4.0 ppm will be replaced by the value of 10 ppm.

5 Residues of glyphosate in/on succulent peas and beans of crop subgroups 6A and 6B will be covered under 0.1 ppm as per Part B, Division 15, Subsection B.15.002(1) of the FDAR.
