Crops yields are constantly affected by harmful organisms. It is essential to protect plants and plant products against such organisms in order to prevent a reduction in yield or damage to them and to ensure both the quality of the harvested products and high agricultural productivity. One of the most common methods of protecting plants and plant products from harmful organisms is the use of active substances in plant protection products. However, a possible consequence of their use may be the presence of residues in the treated products .
Plant protection products shall be used properly. Proper use shall include the application of the principles of good plant protection practice and compliance with the conditions specified on the labels, inter alia.: (a) the maximum dose per hectare in each application; (b) the period between the last application and harvest; (c) the maximum number of applications per year .
