pesticide products Cygnus Fungicide and Kresoxim-Methyl Manufacturing
Use Product (EPA File Symbol 7969-REU and 7969-RLG), containing the
active ingredient kresoxim-methyl (methyl (E)-methoxyimino-2-[2-(o-
tolyloxymethyl) phenyl] acetate) at 50.0 and 94.0% respectively, an
active ingredient not included in any previously registered products.
However, since the notice of receipt of these applications to register
the products as required by section 3(c)(4) of FIFRA, as amended did
not publish in the Federal Register, interested parties may submit

The Agency has considered all required data on risks associated
with the proposed use of kresoxim-methyl (methyl (E)-methoxyimino-2-[2-
(o-tolyloxymethyl) phenyl] acetate), and information on social,
economic, and environmental benefits to be derived from use.
Specifically, the Agency has considered the nature of the chemical and
its pattern of use, application methods and rates, and level and extent
of potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency was able to
make basic health and safety determinations which show that use of
kresoxim-methyl(methyl (E)-methoxyimino-2-[2-(o-tolyloxymethyl) phenyl]
acetate) when used in accordance with widespread and commonly
recognized practice, will not generally cause unreasonable adverse
effects to the environment.
More detailed information on these registrations are contained in
the EPA Pesticide Fact Sheet on kresoxim-methyl (methyl (E)-
methoxyimino-2-[2-(o-tolyloxymethyl) phenyl] acetate).
