MRLS of Deemed Registered Pesticides

Fixation of MRLs of Deemed Registered Pesticides

The persistence and residues of deemed to be registered pesticides (DRPs), which have label claims without MRL, were evaluated for the fixation of MRLs and the safe waiting period. The project has conducted 160 multi-location supervised field trials on nine DRPs (carbaryl, dimethoate, dichlorvos, mancozeb, methyl parathion, oxydemeton methyl, phorate, quinalphos and zineb) on various food commodities. On the basis of the generated data, the MRLs were fixed on 24 DRP-commodity combinations.
