About us

Different countries have different pesticide regulations. They include limits for pesticide residues on food, product registration requirements, and pesticide use restrictions. Because of these differences, pesticides in international trade can be subject to pesticide regulations from multiple countries.

Allowable Pesticide Residues on Commodities

Most countries, including the Unites States, regulate the amount of pesticide residue allowed on a given crop. The amount of pesticide residue allowed on a crop in one country may not be the same amount allowed on the same crop in another country. Imported crops are often subject to the regulations of the country accepting the crop.
