Background

The need to protect crops from pests and damage dates back millennia. In recent decades, pesticides have emerged as the most effective method of control. With pesticide use comes a need to manage their wider effects. One key area of importance is ensuring that safe maximum residue levels (MRLs) are agreed on and monitored globally for food and feed products. Governments setting MRLs have someway to go before any harmonised approach is implemented worldwide. Therefore, it is imperative companies involved in food and feed goods are proactive and vigilant in understanding and meeting MRLs requirements in their chosen markets.
