Cambodian Government Recalls Fungicide to Conform to New EU Rules

The government has ordered a nationwide recall of the fungicide tricyclazole to keep its rice exports eligible for the important EU market, but said it might not get the chemical out of its supplies in time to meet the bloc’s July deadline, reports Van Roeun on CambodiaDaily.com.

The E.U.’s new threshold is 0.01 milligrams of tricyclazole residue per kilogram of rice paddy, down from the current cutoff of 1 milligram.

The Agriculture Ministry issued an announcement on Monday asking farmers to stop using the fungicide and all wholesalers and retailers to hand over their supplies to the government. It also orders provincial agriculture departments to inspect suppliers for compliance.

The statement said that tricyclazole can leave a “residue” on treated crops.

“All these chemicals are being collected and stored and they are no longer allowed to import [them],” Agriculture Minister Veng Sakhon said on Tuesday. Otherwise, he added, the E.U. “will stop importing our rice because they say it would affect people’s health.”
