Dear Ms. Burke:

RE: RESOURCE Herbicide, EPA Reg. No., 59639-82

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has completed the review of the referenced application, including supplemental information submitted in response to our February 16, 1995 letter of incompleteness.

RESOURCE Herbicide contains the new active ingredient, flumiclorac pentyl ester. Flumiclorac pentyl ester is the first food use chemical accepted under EPA's Reduced Risk Strategy. The data package submitted was reviewed by the New York State Department of Health (DOH) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's Division of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) and Division of Water (DOW).

The Department has concluded, based on the information submitted that:
The Department is in the process of developing a generic management plan for all corn herbicides. As a condition of registration, you are required to participate in development and implementation of this plan. Enclosed with this letter is a packet of information relative to this program.

The analytical methodology submitted on September 26, 1995 for determining residues in water for flumiclorac pentyl ester was not acceptable. It is not complete and does not include a method for determining the IMCA degradate. An acceptable analytical methodology must be submitted to this Department by close of business November 15, 1995. The methodology for residues in soil that was submitted with the original data package, however, is acceptable. Enclosed are a New York State stamped "accepted" copy of the label and the Certificate of Registration.

Please contact Ms. Maureen Serafini, of my staff, at (518) 457-3016 or 457-7446, if you have any additional questions.
