Israel: Israel Reviews its Use of Approved Agrochemicals

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   IS2021-0007

Israel plans to conduct a review of the use of 34 chemicals, which are components of approximately 180 agrochemicals that local farmers currently use. The Israeli Plant Protection Services (PPIS) will conduct the review over the coming two years beginning in October 2021. This might lead to an update of Israel’s maximum residue limit (MRL) list for agrochemical residues in both locally produced and imported fruits and vegetables. Interested stakeholders are invited to submit their comments to the technical committee.
