Breakout Session 3A:
Stop Residue Exceedance
Dates: 07 November 2018
Time: 9-10 am
Location: Plenary Hall
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices have successfully been introduced as an integral part of GLOBALG.A.P. to reduce the use of chemical crop protection products. However, legal requirements to limit the maximum residue levels of pesticides have not fully been harmonized and the agricultural sector has not been successful in completely avoiding occasional incidences of exceedances. With the introduction of consumer labels, retailers and brand owners as well as GLOBALG.A.P. are acquiring more accountability with respect to exceedances.
A number of Residue Monitory Systems (RMS) have been operating successfully in many markets. The panelists of this session will discuss current challenges and opportunities to stop residue exceedance in the light of new on-site testing kits, the initial introduction of zero residue programs, the harmonization efforts among RMS, and the ability of sharing residue testing data in a responsible way.
