      The intent of this network is to inform interested parties of
      recent or impending pesticide use cancellations and tolerance
      revocations.  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 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.

      EPTC (Eptam)       Zeneca, Inc. (formerly ICI Americas) and Drexel
                         Chemical Co. will voluntarily cancel the use of
                         EPTC on SWEET POTATO, FLAX, TABLE BEETS, and
                         GREEN PEAS due to the cost of reregistration
                         residue studies.  If IR-4 or another party
                         wishes to supply the necessary data, Zeneca
                         will support the reregistration of EPTC on
                         these uses.  Zeneca is committed to supporting
                         all other registered uses of EPTC.
