The MRL values listed below apply to grapes, unless otherwise stated.

ziram

Product group: Fungicide
Registered products: Ziragranz, Ziram DG, Ziram Granuflo

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

Comments:

An MRL of 5 mg/kg applies to table grapes. 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.
03/11/2009 05/07/2019
Australia T 15

Comments:

The MRL is temporary.

MRL Notes:

The residue for ziram 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.

MRL Notes:

This active is not authorised for use in Brazil.
09/03/2018 05/07/2019
Canada 7

MRL Notes:

The MRL is for the total residue arising from the use of polymeric manganese and zinc ethylenebis-dithiocarbamates (e.g. mancozeb, metiram and zineb).

Codex 5

MRL Notes:

Residues of ziram are determined as carbon disulfide evolved during acid digestion, and expressed as carbon disulfide. The MRL is for the total residue arising from the use of dithiocarbamates.
07/10/2009 05/07/2019
European Union Member Countries 0.1

Comments:

The MRL is at the lower limit of analytical determination. As all dithiocarbamates result in the final CS2 residue, discrimination among them is generally not possible. However single residue methods are available for propineb, ziram and thiram. These methods should be implemented on a case by case basis when the specific quantification of propineb, ziram and/or thiram is required.
