Maximum Residue Levels (MRL) is referred to the highest level of a pesticide residue that is legally tolerated in or on food or feed when pesticides are applied correctly duringa good Agricultural Practice. And a residue is typically something that’s remains after a part is taken, designated, or after the completion of a process.

Usually, each country has its own methods, toxicology studies to determine the safest level of residue as well as level of exposure that could have no adverse effect on animals, humans, or plants, and that enables them to set their own MRLs and regulations on a national level.
