Under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has added new uses on field peppers and transplanted mustard greens to the product labels of Dual Magnum Herbicide and Dual II Magnum Herbicide, containing technical grade S-metolachlor. The specific uses approved in Canada are detailed on the labels of Dual Magnum and Dual II Magnum, Pest Control Products Act Registration Numbers 25728 and 25729, respectively.
Corresponding maximum residue limits (MRLs) were proposed in the consultation document published on 18 November 2010, Proposed Maximum Residue Limit PMRL2010-57, S-metolachlor. The PMRA received no comments in response to this consultation.
To comply with Canada's international trade obligations, consultation on the proposed MRLs was also conducted internationally by notifying the World Trade Organization, as coordinated by the Standards Council of Canada. No comments were received as a result of the World Trade Organization consultation.
The following MRLs take legal effect in Canada as of the publication date of this document and either replace or are in addition to the MRLs already established for S-metolachlor.
