Triclopyr (Grandstand) MRL clears hurdles in Korea

Triclopyr (Grandstand) MRL clears hurdles in Korea

The Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) has completed the initial data and application review to support a permanent maximum residue limit (MRL). Corteva submitted the application and the information now appears on the MFDS database public facing page.

What does this mean? 

The Korean MFDS is moving forward to approve a permanent MRL for triclopyr on rice. Currently, the temporary MRL is in effect until the permanent status is approved in 2023. 

Concern existed earlier this year with the Korean MFDS announcement to cancel the temporary triclopyr MRL on rice. In lieu of cancellation, the Korean MFDS maintained the temporary MRL for current rice shipments. 

For questions and additional information, please contact Roberta Firoved, Industry Affairs Manager at rfiroved@calrice.org or (916) 206-5039.

This brand new program is a good first step to meet the needs of very small businesses impacted by the drought. This success was the result of great work with NCWA, CA Agricultural Aircraft Association, California Warehouse Association and others in agriculture. To address the needs of rice mills, dryers and larger suppliers, federal relief will be needed.

Rice Pesticides: Key Links and Updates

The links below include select pesticide updates in an effort to provide the information in an easily accessible way. Please remember, the pesticide label is the ultimate level of enforcement and the county permit conditions can supersede the label with more restrictive requirements. You will find permit conditions and the water hold table for Thiobencarb. County permit conditions have been changed to active ingredient rather than trade or product name. The products with combination formulations could have permit conditions apply to one, and not both, of the active ingredients. In this situation, the most stringent requirements must be followed. The EPA Reg. No. provides additional identification of the individual pesticide products on the Rice Pesticide Update Table.
