Comments:

In fresh grapes, copper hydroxide is exempt from the requirement of an MRL when used in accordance with good agricultural practice.

MRL Notes:

The MRL for copper is for wine and the residue is calculated as copper. Tolerances are established for residues of mancozeb (a coordination product of zinc ion and maneb (manganese ethylenebisdithiocarbamate)), including its metabolites and degradates. Compliance with these tolerance levels is to be determined by measuring only those mancozeb residues convertible to and expressed in terms of the degradate carbon disulfide.
