Pesticide metalaxyl in or on various commodities (ICS Codes: 65.020, 65.100, 67.040, 67.080)
Proposed Maximum Residue Limit: Metalaxyl (PMRL2021-13). Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 7
The objective of the notified document PMRL2021-13 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limits (MRLs) for metalaxyl that have been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).
MRL (ppm)1 Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity
10 Bearberries, bilberries, cloudberries, lowbush blueberries2, muntries, partridgeberries
1.5 Caneberries (crop subgroup 13-07A)3
0.5 Tree Nuts (crop group 14-11, except almond nuts, black walnuts, and English walnuts)4
1 ppm = parts per million
2 The MRL is proposed to replace the currently established 3.0 ppm MRL for lowbush blueberries.
3 The MRL is proposed to replace the currently established 0.2 ppm MRL for raspberries and add MRLs for the remaining commodities in the crop subgroup.
4 Almond nuts, black walnuts and English walnuts are excluded from this MRL action as a 0.5 ppm MRL is already established for these commodities.
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.
