  • If a grower covered the soil in a greenhouse container system and then sprayed a prohibited substance, can the soil be used in containers in subsequent cropping cycles if tests show that it does not contain any residues of the prohibited substance?


  • Are the restrictions in the formulant listings in Table 4.2 & 4.3 only applicable when formulants are specifically mentioned in an annotation? Or do the annotations for formulants apply whenever a substance contains a formulant?


  • May calcium chloride be used as an ingredient in beer making?
