Triclopyr (Grandstand) MRL clears hurdles in Korea

Triclopyr (Grandstand) MRL clears hurdles in Korea

The Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) has completed the initial data and application review to support a permanent maximum residue limit (MRL). Corteva submitted the application and the information now appears on the MFDS database public facing page.

What does this mean? 

The Korean MFDS is moving forward to approve a permanent MRL for triclopyr on rice. Currently, the temporary MRL is in effect until the permanent status is approved in 2023. 

Concern existed earlier this year with the Korean MFDS announcement to cancel the temporary triclopyr MRL on rice. In lieu of cancellation, the Korean MFDS maintained the temporary MRL for current rice shipments.
