ONLINE DATABASE HELPS GROWERS WHO MARKET TO CANADA
A new online database has been established to resolve differences in available crop protection tools and maximum residue levels in the United States and Canada.
The project is important for any producers who ship products to Canada.
FFVA Director of Environmental & Pest Management Dan Botts, who serves as the project’s director, says the database represents an opportunity for producers of individual commodities to identify specific product needs, the U.S. registrant of each product, and the corresponding U.S. tolerances and Canadian MRLs.
The database, which was officially rolled out April 9 at the Informa Pest Symposium, will give the regulatory community the ability to put potential decisions into context on real-world impacts.
The database, which continues to be expanded and developed, is available online to growers, regulators and registrants at www.mrlharmonization.com.
For additional information, producer members may contact Botts at (321) 214-5200.
