tebuconazole 10   07/04/2010 11/07/2018
tebuconazole + azoxystrobin 10 + 10   14/03/2018 11/07/2018
tebufenozide 2   18/05/2012 11/07/2018
tetraconazole 0.5   07/04/2010 11/07/2018
tetradecenyl acetate + tetradecadienyl acetate

Comments:

Lepidopteran pheremones are generally exempt from the requirement of an MRL.

thiram 5

MRL Notes:

Residues of thiram are determined as carbon disulfide evolved during acid digestion, and expressed as carbon disulfide. The MRL is for the combined residues arising from the use of dithiocarbamates, including mancozeb, metiram, propineb, thiram, zineb and ziram.

triadimefon 0.5   07/04/2010 11/07/2018
triadimenol 0.5

MRL Notes:

The MRL is for triadimenol residues resulting from the use of the parent triadimefon as well as residues from the use of triadimenol itself.

trichlorfon 0.5   07/04/2010 11/07/2018
Trichoderma harzianum

Comments:

Biological preparations typically do not require MRLs.

trifluralin 0.05   07/04/2010 11/07/2018
zineb 5

MRL Notes:

Residues of zineb are determined as carbon disulfide evolved during acid digestion, and expressed as carbon disulfide. The MRL is for the combined residues arising from the use of dithiocarbamates, including mancozeb, metiram, propineb, thiram, zineb and ziram.

MRL Notes:

Residues of ziram are determined as carbon disulfide evolved during acid digestion, and expressed as carbon disulfide. The MRL is for the combined residues arising from the use of dithiocarbamates, including mancozeb, metiram, propineb, thiram, zineb and ziram.
