  Enclosed is a latest notice of the Reregistration Notification Network 
 
  (RNN) dated February 16, 1994.  This issue of the RNN deals with several 
 
  residue tolerance revocations and a change in the classification of dried
 
  hops from a processed to a raw agricultural commodity.

  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 these 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.
  alachlor    The USEPA has proposed the revocation of certain tolerances for
    (Lasso)   residues of alachlor on COTTON FORAGE, COTTONSEED, SUNFLOWER
              SEED, PEA FORAGE, PEA HAY, PEAS WITH THE PODS REMOVED, and
              POTATOES.  Products containing registrations for these crops 
              were canceled in 1988.  Registered products for several other 
              uses of this herbicide will continue to have tolerances.  The 
              USEPA is not recommending the establishment of action levels in 
              place of the revoked tolerances because sufficient time has 
              elapsed in order for the residues of the herbicide to dissipate.  
              Written comments, identified by OPP-300315, should be sent to 
              the Public Response Section of EPA by 3/21/94.
