    EPA received applications from BASF Corporation 26 Davis Drive, 
P.O. Box 13528, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709-3528, to register the 
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 
written comments within 30 days from the date of publication of this

    These applications were approved on September 30, 1998, for the two 
products listed below:
    1. Cygnus Fungicide for use on greenhouse ornamentals (EPA 
Registration Number 7969-124).
    2. Kresoxim-Methyl Manufacturing Use Product for formulating 
fungicide products; for use on greenhouse ornamentals (EPA Registration 
Number 7969-153).
    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).

these pesticides, use patterns and formulations, science findings, and 
the Agency's regulatory position and rationale, may be obtained from
