impending pesticide use cancellations, tolerance revocations, and other items
of agricultural interest.  To the best of our knowledge, the uses mentioned

the USEPA after those uses are canceled.  We recommend that you express any
concerns or questions you have to the contact mentioned below or to your

  ===========================================================================        methazole   The USEPA has extended the existing stocks provision for the
   (Probe)  cancellation of methazole for one year.  This herbicide was 
            registered for use on COTTON.  The initial voluntary 
            cancellation of this chemical was reported here on 2/5/93 and 
            allowed sales until 12/31/93.  Retailers still have an 
            inventory of approximately 2,000 pounds of methazole and in 
            order to deplete existing stocks, the USEPA is allowing the 
            distribution, sale, and use of the remaining methazole product 
            with revised supplemental labeling until 12/31/94.
