ABSTRACT
The article reports on the move of the farm commodity organizations to face the issue of pesticide maximum residue limits (MRLs) on fruit production, within the fruit industry in the U.S. It mentions that the diligence of the organizations to handle the issue would make the job of the growers and pest control advisors easier when using pesticides. Marcy Martin, director of trade for the California Grape and Tree Fruit League (CGTFL) states that growers should use the chemicals on food products.
