Nepal government to fix maximum residue limits on fruit and veg
During a multilateral meeting of government agencies last Thursday, it was decided to direct the Ministry of Agriculture Development to implement the MRL on farm products. The meeting also decided to formulate policies and develop infrastructure to discourage sales of agro products contaminated with chemical residues.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), there are more than 1000 pesticides used around the world, to protect crops from pests. Each pesticide has different properties and toxicological effects.
Kathmandupost.com reported that apart from fixing the MRL, the government has decided to open at least one quarantine check point in each of the seven provinces. These check points will monitor the import of vegetable, fruits, seeds and livestock related products. “The check points will be well staffed by experts and well equipped with technology,” the Commerce Ministry said in a press statement.
