Correction
In FR Doc. 95-12566 published in the Federal Register of Wednesday, May 24, 1995, beginning on page 27505, in the 2nd
column, fourth line from the top, the sentence "EPA has determined that all currently registered products subject
to reregistration containing these active ingredients are eligible for reregistration.", is corrected to read as
follows: "EPA has determined that all currently registered products subject to reregistration containing
Metolachlor are eligible for reregistration except those with uses for potatoes, soybeans, and peanuts. An eligibility
decision for these uses cannot be made at this time because under current policies, section 409 tolerances under the
Federal Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) are needed because Metolachlor concentrates in some of the processed
fractions of these crops and such tolerances may be barred by the Delaney Clause. EPA has determined that all currently
registered products subject to reregistration containing Linuron are eligible for reregistration except for the use of
Linuron on cotton, potato, non-cropland (rights- of-way), and sweet corn until additional generic data are submitted.
The Agency is unable to make a reregistration eligibility decision on the use of Linuron on potatoes because under
current policies tolerances under section 409 of the (FFDCA) are needed for this use, but such a tolerance may be
barred by the Delaney clause in section 409."
There are no changes regarding Ethephon.
