WSU-TFREC/Postharvest Information Network/Residue Tolerances for Postharvest Chemicals



Residue Tolerances for Postharvest Chemicals


Introduction

The Northwest Horticultural Council publishes a complete list of maximum residue allowances for apples, pears, and cherries its Export Manual. This Export Manual is available online at www.nwhort.org. Because countries continue to revise their standards, the following table should be used as a general reference only. Shippers should consult the Export Manual and their importers to ascertain the latest standards in the importing country.

Use pesticides with care. Apply them only to plants, animals, or sites listed on the label. When mixing and applying pesticides, follow all precautions to protect yourself and others around you. It is a violation of law to disregard label directions. If pesticides are spilled on skin or clothing, remove clothing and wash skin thoroughly. Store pesticides in their original containers and keep them out of the reach of children, pets, and livestock. Trade names have been used to simplify information; no endorsement is intended.

Footnotes

Footnotes:
a
Combined Folpet and Captan residue tolerance.
b
Dash (-) indicated that no tolerance has been set and no tolerance can be assumed.
c
These values have not been confirmed by U.S. embassy sources.
d
Defers to CODEX where no tolerance was set. Plus (+) indicates a country which defers to CODEX.
e
Symbol defers to CODEX and U.S. standards where no standard was set.
f
CODEX standards are the best guide where no tolerance is set.
g
All Ioprodine residue information was received from the Registrant Rhone Poulenc.
h
Unsupported for reregistration.
i
United Kingdom has no tolerances set for cherries.
