MRL Workshop to Focus on IPM and Export Issues

California Almond growers, PCAs and handlers who ship to export markets must constantly be aware of the maximum pesticide residue levels allowed by each market. A workshop to provide a practical overview of maximum residue levels (MRLs) science and policy issues is being offered to help attendees understand the evolving regulatory requirements of our global trading partners.

The April 2 meeting, to be held at the Visalia Convention Center, will provide practical insights on how MRLs are developed and how they drive pest management programs, export business and what the future looks like for global trade.

The program is organized by AgBusiness Resources and meeting sponsors.

Presentations will include MRL basics, constraints and challenges to integrated pest management, why MRLs differ in various parts of the world, complexities of using residue decline curves, MRL database tools, GlobalGAP and trade agreements.

Speakers include Barbara Madden, U.S. EPA; Becky Sisco, IR-4 Minor Use Registration Program at UC Davis; Nirmal Sanai, CDFA; Bob Mills, GlobalGAP; Mickey Paggi, CSU Fresno Center for Ag Business, Kimberly Berry, Bryant-Christie, Inc.; a registrant panel and others.

The 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. program includes lunch, and 4 hours of PCA credit will be offered. Online registration is available at $125. Onsite registration will be $150.
