OECD Trade Policy Studies Environmental Requirements and Market Access: Limits on Pesticide Residues in Snow Peas
Abstract:This chapter examines the problems resulting from pesticide residues in snow peas produced in Guatemala and imported into the United States that exceeded the limits set by US regulations. The production of snow peas was originally encouraged by USAID, which eventually undertook research on and training in pest management in order to avoid excess pesticide residue in export crops.
