This necessitates the use of sprout suppressant chemicals such as chlorpropham
We selected 19 pesticides (azoxystrobin, boscalid, chlorpropham
, chlorpyrifos, cypermethrin, cyprodinil, fenhexamid, fludioxonil, glyphosate, imazalil (enilconazole), imidacloprid, malathion, mancozeb, o-phenylphenol (OPP), pirimiphos-methyl, prochloraz, propamocarb, pyrimethanil, and thiabendazole) for in-depth study.
The changes and amendments in the four Commission Regulations (EU) No 36/2014 (1), (EU) No 51/2014 (2), (EU) No 61/2014 (3) and (EU) No 79/2014 (4) are related to the Maximum Residues Levels (MRLs) for pesticides aminopyralid, chlorantraniliprole, cyflufenamid, mepiquat, metalaxyl-M, propamocarb, pyriofenone, quinoxyfen, dimethomorph, indoxacarb, pyraclostobin, cyromazine, fenpropidin, formetanate, oxamyl, tebuconazole, bifenazate, chlorpropham
, esfenvalerate, fludioxonil and thiobencarb in or on food and feed of plant and animal origin imported into the EU.
It said the chlorpropham
traces were found during routine quality checks.
One potato sample was found with traces of the pesticide chlorpropham
I don't eat the skin of potatoes as traces of chemical sprout suppressants -- chlorpropham
, tecnazene and thiabendazole -- may be present.
Traditional post-harvest potato sprout inhibitors such as chlorpropham
(CIPC) are being used on over 5 million tons of all US fresh market and processing potatoes ensuring the availability of potatoes to consumers year-round.
METHODS: We used the MDA-kb2 assay to test a combination of eight AR antagonists that did not also possess AR agonist properties ("pure" antagonists; 8 mix: fludioxonil, fenhexamid, ortho-phenylphenol, imazalil, tebuconazole, dimethomorph, methiocarb, pirimiphos-methyl), a combination of five AR antagonists that also showed agonist activity (5 mix: cyprodinil, pyrimethanil, vinclozolin, chlorpropham
, linuron), and all pesticides combined (13 mix).
Traces of chlorpropham
was discovered during quality checks.

948 -- Herbicides Chlorpropham
Jan 2015 22 Inactive 7.
Traces of the herbicide chlorpropham
, known to have a toxic effect on laboratory animals, were found in 36 potatoes which ``could'' be above a safety level for humans if cooked unpeeled, such as backed potatoes, the report said.
