Expert Insights: Smithers Viscient Webinar Series - “Conduct of plant metabolism and translocation studies with crop protection products – An examination of case studies.”

Plant metabolism studies including confined rotational crop studies, are an important component of the registration of plant protection products. The USA, EU and Japan all require such testing as required by the following guidelines of the U.S. EPA Residue Chemistry Guidelines, OPPTS 860.1300: Nature of the Residue - Plants, Livestock. The OECD 501 (Metabolism in Crops) and OECD 502 (Metabolism in Rotational Crops) guidelines satisfy the requirements of the EU regulation EC 1107/2009 and the data requirements for active ingredients (EU 283/2013) and in Japan, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan (12-Nousan-No. 8147, 2-4-1, 2000) are followed. Similarly, translocation studies in plants have also become increasingly important in the safety assessment of these products, especially in relationship to pollinator insects.

During this webinar, case studies will be presented to demonstrate the functional conduct of such studies from planting to dosing and to harvesting and analysis. Selected results of the case studies using tomato plants and other crops will be presented and their potential impact on risk assessment of plant protection products discussed.
