Conventional agrochemicals have been used for many years , negative side effects due to their application on cultivated crops emerged, and therefore several active substances were withdrawn from the market, while others were subjected to restrictions for use and long pre-harvest intervals ( the time between the last pesticides application and harvest of the treated crop).
Furthermore, due to new information and data, maximum residue levels of many active substances were reduced.
The pesticide re-registration process is still ongoing. Other additional active substance, which used to be considered safe, may be subjected to strong limitations and restrictions, because involuntary intakes of pesticide residues in food may result in new, sometimes delayed ,pathological effects.
