Dear Dr. Abbott:

Re: Registration of Special Local Need Labeling for REWARD Landscape and Aquatic Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 100-1091)

    The Department has reviewed your application, received March 19, 2003, to register Special Local Need (SLN) labeling for REWARD Landscape and Aquatic Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 100-1091) in New York State.

    The Federally approved label for this product cannot be registered "as-is" due to restrictions specified in 6NYCRR Part 327.6(b) and additional concerns of the Department.

    The SLN labeling specifies the New York State required aquatic use restrictions for REWARD Landscape and Aquatic Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 100-1091). The product is assigned the registration number SLN No. NY-O3OOO1.

    REWARD Landscape and Aquatic Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 10182-404) has been transferred from Zeneca Ag Products to Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc. and has been assigned the new EPA Reg. No. 100-1091. This new SLN registration, EPA SLN No. NY-O3OOO1, is for Syngenta's REWARD Landscape and Aquatic Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 100-1091) and is identical to EPA SLN No. NY-970010 for Zeneca's Reward Landscape and Aquatic Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 10182-404).

    Therefore, under the authority of Section 24(c) of FIFRA, the Department hereby grants a Special Local Need registration for REWARD Landscape and Aquatic Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 100-1091).

    The SLN labeling contains the only aquatic uses allowed in New York State. All precautionary statements, applicable use directions, use precautions and limitations of the labeling affixed to the REWARD Landscape and Aquatic Herbicide container must be followed.

    The product, REWARD Landscape and Aquatic Herbicide (SLN No. NY-O3OOO1), as noted on the "restriction" column on the certificate, is classified as "restricted use" in New York State under rules and regulations 6NYCRR 326.2(h).

    As such, this product is restricted in its purchase, distribution, sale, use, and possession in New York State.

    According to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Regulations 6NYCRR 326.3(a): "It shall be unlawful for any person to distribute, sell, offer for sale, purchase for the purpose of resale, or possess for the purpose of resale, any restricted pesticide unless said person shall have applied for, and been issued a commercial permit."

    Should you require information to obtain a commercial permit, please contact the Pesticide Certification Section, at (518) 402-8748.

    The Certificate of Pesticide Registration and a copy of the New York State stamped "ACCEPTED" SLN labeling for REWARD Landscape and Aquatic Herbicide are enclosed for your records.

    Please be reminded that a copy of the accepted SLN label must be distributed with all product distributed in New York State and be in the possession of the user at the time of pesticide application.

    Please contact Ms. Jeanine Broughel, of my staff, at (518) 402-8768, if you have any questions. Sincerely,

Samuel J. Jackling
Chief
Pesticide Product Registration Section
