Dear Mr. Harrison:

Re:  Registration of Agree Biological Insecticide (EPA Reg. No. 100-733)

The Department has approved your application to register the referenced
product for use in New York State as a biological insecticide for use on
terrestrial fruits, vegetables, as well as tobacco and corn.  This product is
classified as a general use pesticide.

The active ingredient Bacillus thuringiensis var. aizawai strain GC-91 is a
new active ingredient.  We reviewed all of the information submitted in
support of the registration, and have determined that proper use of Agree
Biological Insecticide is not likely to result in significant health or
environmental risks.

The approved label is the federally registered label submitted.  Enclosed is
the Certificate of Pesticide Registration and a copy of the stamped-approved
label for


Norman H. Nosenchuck, P.E.
Division of Hazardous Substances Regulation
