Maximum residue levels on radish leaves

Published by AGRINFO on

Summary

The EU intends to clarify which pesticide residue maximum residue levels (MRLs) apply to radish leaves. This draft Regulation introduces a distinction between small and large radish leaves. For large radish leaves, the MRLs set for kale will apply. For small radish leaves, the MRLs for Roman rocket/rucola will apply. This could potentially have an impact on suppliers of small radish leaves.

There is an opportunity to provide feedback on this proposal via the European Commission’s Have your Say website until 21 March 2024.
