EU extends residue survey
A total of 189 active ingredients will be covered by the EU co-ordinated survey of pesticide residues in food in the 2012-14 programme, says the European Commission. The revised survey supersedes the 2011-13 schedule, which covered 183 ais ( Agrow No 603, p 10). Adjustments have been made to reflect the results of residue surveys, and approvals or withdrawals of ais. The EU programme is run on a three-year basis, covering different crop groups for each of the three years.
