  The intent of this network is to inform interested parties of recent or
  impending pesticide use cancellations, tolerance revocations and other items
  of interest.  To the best of our knowledge, the uses mentioned here, unless
  otherwise indicated, will not appear on any label registered by the USEPA
  following their expected cancellation.  We would recommend that you express
  any concerns or questions you may have to the contact mentioned below or

  diallate    The USEPA has proposed the revocation of the all tolerances for
  (Avadex)    residues of diallate as of 8/30/96.  This herbicide was canceled
              as of 1/22/91 due to nonpayment of the annual registration
              maintenance fees.  The cancellation order did allow for existing
              stocks to be used until exhausted.  Therefore, the USEPA is
              proposing that the revocation not take effect until 8/30/96, to
              allow for residues of the pesticide to dissipate.  The USEPA
              does not expect any lingering environmental contamination,
              consequently, no action levels will be recommended to replace
              the present tolerances when they're revoked.  diallate was
              registered for use on alfalfa, barley, clover, field corn,
              flaxseed, lentils, peas, potatoes, safflower, soybeans, and
              sugar beets.  written comments, identified by opp-300299,
              should be sent to the Public Response Branch of EPA by
