MRL Notes:

The MRL for metalaxyl is for the combined residue of metalaxyl, its metabolites containing the 2,6-dimethylaniline moiety, and N-(2-hydroxy methyl-6-methylphenyl)-N-(methoxyacetyl)-alanine methyl ester, expressed as metalaxyl equivalents. 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.
