Subform VII: Scientific Study

1. Study Reference

3. Type of incident identified in the study

Increased health or environmental risk

4. Describe the incident identified in the study (e.g. study demonstrates an increased risk to non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma after exposure to pesticide X)

In 2020, three non-GLP almond research trials were conducted by Bayer in Fresno, California to investigate the impact of the timing of a fluopyram application on the resulting fluopyram residue. The application timings in the trials ranged from February to July with PHI of more than 30 days. The residues ranged from less than 0.01 ppm to 0.11 ppm, with the highest residues occurring after application timings from April through June. Additional affirmative residue trials are planned for 2021.
