metiram

Product group: Fungicide
Registered products: Polyram DF

Country MRL (mg/kg) Comments Updated Reviewed
Argentina 5

Comments:

No Argentine MRL has been established. This is a Codex MRL which is acceptable, provided that the Argentine authorities do not consider there to be an unacceptable risk from the residue.

Australia T 15

MRL Notes:

The MRL for metiram is for the combined residue arising from the use of dithiocarbamate fungicides. The residue is determined as carbon disulfide evolved during acid digestion, and is expressed as mg/kg carbon disulfide. The MRL is temporary.
