Pesticide Evaluation and Education, Magnitude of Residue Field Trial Pendimethalin/Broccoli and Cauliflower


  • The objective of the trial was to collect samples of broccoli grown in plots to which pendimethalin had been applied. The samples were to be analyzed in order to establish the level of the herbicide remaining at harvest in comparison to unsprayed broccoli plants. The results were to be included in a petition to EPA requesting a tolerance for pendimethalin residues in all head-forming brassicas.
