Diseases and parasites can seriously reduce the yield of agricultural crops, fruit and vegetables. Plant protection products containing pesticides are used to protect crops before and after harvest. Normally these chemicals kill harmful insects, weeds and fungi. The risk to the health of the population is a very timely and complex problem associated with the ingestion of plant protection products through food. The amount of residues found in food must be safe for consumers and as low as possible. A maximum residue limit (MRL) is the highest level of a pesticide legally tolerated in food or feed. These limits also apply to processed products, taking into account dilution or concentration factors during processing operations.
