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