captan       The USEPA has revoked the feed additive tolerance for residues
(Orthocide)  of the fungicide, captan, in or on CORN SEED, remaining after
             detreatment to reduce captan residues resulting from the
             intended use of captan as a seed protectant.  The revocation
             was final as of 8/4/93.  Written objections addressing one or
             more of the revocation criteria and/or requests for a hearing,
             identified by OPP-300199A, should be received by 9/3/93 by the
             EPA Hearing Clerk.
