  diuron       DuPont plans to delete the use of OATS and BERMUDA GRASS from
    (Karmex)   their labels of the herbicide, Karmex DF (diuron), due to the 
               cost of reregistration.  They have not yet submitted requests 
               to the USEPA for voluntary deletion of these uses from their 
               labels and will consider retaining them if another party is 
               willing to develop the required residue data.
