Methyl Isothiocyanate - Vorlex: Cancellation of All Food Uses 8/92

MITC + 1,3-D       NOR-AM Chemical Company is cancelling all food
 (Vorlex)          uses of Vorlex in the U.S.  They are taking
                   this action because of the cost of reregistra-
                   tion.  This will eliminate the use of Vorlex on
                   food crops including greenhouse and field soil
                   fumigation of FRUITS, VEGEtableS, FIELD CROPS,
                   ORNAMENTALS, NURSERY STOCK, and SEED BEDS.  The
                   registration of MITC on wood products, and
                   1,3-D on food products will continue.
