According to Nufarm, the world leader in crop protection, the new Maximum Residue Limit (MRL) of Diclorprop-P for the whole citrus group was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 30th September (Regulation (EU ) of Commission 2017/1777). The new MRL set at 0.3 mg / kg includes oranges, mandarins, lemons, limes and grapefruits.
The immediate objective of Nufarm, specializing in innovative solutions for seed technology and crop protection, is to recover the use of “increase fruit size” in mandarins and lemons for its product Clementgros Plus (DICLORPROP-P 2,5% ESTER 2-ETILHEXIL) and additionally add the application to “avoid falling fruit”. Clementgros Plus is authorized for both uses in oranges
