- Two fungicides (cyprodinil and fludioxonil) have recently been used in southeast Spain to control disease in lettuce and grape. Gas chromatography with a nitrogen−phosphorus detector (GC-NPD) was used to study the disappearance of these compounds from crops under field conditions and during refrigeration. Residual values 21 days after application were below the maximum residue limit (MRL = 0.05 mg kg-1) established by Spanish law in the field experiment for both compounds. However, with the exception of fludioxonil in lettuce, residues were above the MRL in the refrigerated farm produce for both fungicides. The half-lives were 3−6 times greater under refrigeration.
