The intent of this network is to inform interested parties of recent or
impending pesticide use cancellations, tolerance revocations, and other items of agricultural interest.  To the best of our knowledge, the uses mentioned here, unless otherwise indicated, will not appear on any label registered by the USEPA after those uses are canceled.  We recommend that you express any concerns or questions you have to the contact mentioned below or to your NAPIAP State Liaison Representative.  If you wish to contact us at USDA, our phone number is (301) 504-8846, and our fax number is (301) 504-8063.
  EBDCs (mancozeb,   The USEPA has announced that it plans to hold a 
  maneb, metiram)    hearing concerning the request of Elf Atochem and 
                     Griffin Corporations to amend all product labels of 
                     maneb, mancozeb, and metiram, which were affected by 
                     the final EBDC Cancellation Order.  They have 
                     requested the amendment of these fungicide labels to 
                     allow the use of more than one EBDC active ingredient 
                     per season per crop.Currently, these labels state, "If 
                     this product is used on a crop, no other product 
                     containing a different EBDC active ingredient may be 
                     used on the same crop during the same growing season."  
                     The proposed amendments would not change the current 
                     maximum allowable amount of EBDCs.
