Samples of over a third of Brazil crops within MRLs

Official Brazilian monitoring of samples from nine crops resulted in total conformity with maximum residue limits (MRLs) for pesticides. The Ministry of Agriculture’s national control of residues plan, the PNCRC, collected samples from the 2013/14 season, including those for export, for the study. It found that all samples of garlic, peanuts, bananas, potatoes, coffee, onions, beans, soybeans and wheat were within official limits. However, only between 70% and 97% of samples of pineapples, rice, kiwis, apples, papayas, mangos, maize, tomatoes and grapevines were within limits. Some 83.3%-97.1% of collected samples of peanuts, cocoa beans, Brazil-nuts, beans, and peppers resulted were within MRLs. The findings have been issued in the official gazette.
