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.
