Agrochemical update – Change to EU MRL for iprodione

The European Union (EU) maximum residue limit (MRL) for the active constituent iprodione will revert from 20 mg/kg to the default 0.01 mg/kg from 31 July 2019 (COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2019/38). All wines entering the market in the EU after 31 July 2019, regardless of vintage and provenance, must not contain detectable residues of iprodione. It is recommended that all wines be analysed for residues of iprodione before shipment to the EU. Wines that are already in the EU or that arrive before 31 July 2019, are not required to meet the new MRL.

Iprodione is not recommended for use on grapes if the resultant wine is destined for the EU. Follow the recommendations in the ‘Dog book’ for export wine
