CTL testing


west yorkshire
Heard on the grape vine that some mills will be testing grain for CTL residue. Will imports be tested for it too?
what would be the situation if there was some Uk crop stored that was a few years old that had CTL used on it, would that be ok?🤷‍♂️ Could @crazy_bull or anyone else in the trade shed any light on this?


If there's CTL left on farm it must need a hell of a shake to mix it up.
It was a good, cheap, effective fungicide. But an absolute arse if left sitting still for long.
I can remember having some that just wouldn't remix from the bottom of the can. Washing great blobs of it out with a high pressure washer

It was mentioned last year that they would be testing malting barley. Not heard anything else.
They'll soon get bored when all the tests are negative, nobody has got any that I know of.

Just another stick to hit us with while they buy all and sundry in from abroad.

It's pretty easy to say there was some 2020 corn at the back of the shed if anything was said. I doubt the trade would give themselves a use by date, it might affect profits after all.

There is a lot of testing for most chemicals as part of the ongoing monitoring of Maximum Residue levels. I do not see this as being any different to any other chemical, save for the MRL is 0.
