Control on Residues
“Conduct research about residues on flowers and plants and engage with stakeholders concerned by the issue to map out how residues are introduced into the supply chain and have a clearer, joint understanding of the issue.
In a second step, create a management residue protocol to support growers to reduce residues and a theoretical model to analyse the risk of residues that can be used by individual companies as a tool for residue risk analysis.”
