Due to recent Maximum Residue Limits (MRL) violations on export shipments of various fresh produce commodities, Western Growers reminds its members that while the United States may have established tolerances on a particular crop protection compound other countries’ threshold limits may be lower or non-established.

MRL violations can trigger enhanced surveillance or test-and-hold protocols on perishable exports – not just on the individual shipper but sometimes on the entire exporting sector.

Tomorrow, Western Growers will host an in-person discussion in Salinas, California, on Appendix C of the LGMA-approved metrics. During the meeting, attendees will receive an in-depth overview of Appendix C and also have the opportunity to raise questions and learn about new resources available to the industry.

To attend, RSVP to Scott Nichols at snichols@wga.com. RSVPing will ensure a seat at the meeting as there is a 50-person limit for this event. No online format will be available.
