Japanâs Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) announced revisions to Japanâs maximum residue levels for Azoxystrobin, Cyflufenamid, Bixafen, Pyrifluquinazon and Pyriproxyfen for various agricultural commodities. MHLW also proposes to expand the permitted use of Azoxystrobin, a fungicide classified as a food additive by Japan, to potatoes. Interested U.S. parties
are encouraged to submit their comments to PlantDivision@usda.gov by August 12, 2020. Japan will
subsequently notify these MRL revisions to the World Trade Organization, which will provide another opportunity to comment.
