Monsanto Agricultural Co.; Establishment of Temporary Tolerances 
AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
ACTION: Notice.
SUMMARY: EPA has established temporary tolerances for residues 
of the herbicide Methyl 5-[[(4,6-dimethoxy-2-pyrimidinyl)amino]

tolerances were requested by Monsanto Agricultural Company. 
DATES: These temporary tolerances expire March 29, 1994.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  Monsanto Agricultural Company, 800 
North Lindbergh Blvd.; St. Louis, MO 63167, has requested in 
pesticide petition (PP) 2G4073 the establishment of temporary 
tolerances for residues of the herbicide Methyl 5-[[(4,6-dimethoxy-
2-pyrimidinyl)amino] carbonylaminosulfonyl]-3-chloro-1-methyl-
1-H-pyrazole-4-carboxylate in or on the raw agricultural commodities 
field corn grain at 0.1 part per million (ppm); field corn forage, 
and field corn fodder at 0.3 ppm. These temporary tolerances 
will permit the marketing of the above raw agricultural commodities 
when treated in accordance with the provisions of the experimental 
use permit 524-EUP-74, which is being issued under the Federal 
Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended 
(Pub. L. 95-396, 92 Stat. 819; 7 U.S.C. 136). 
   The scientific data reported and other relevant material 
were evaluated, and it was determined that establishment of 
the temporary tolerances will protect the public health. Therefore, 
the temporary tolerances have been established on the condition 
that the pesticide be used in accordance with the experimental 
use permit and with the following provisions: 
   1. The total amount of the active herbicide to be used must 
not exceed the quantity authorized by the experimental use permit. 
   2. Monsanto Agricultural Co., must immediately notify the 
EPA of any findings from the experimental use that have a bearing 
on safety. The company must also keep records of production, 
distribution, and performance and on request make the records 
available to any authorized officer or employee of the EPA or 
the Food and Drug Administration. 
   These tolerances expire March 29, 1994. Residues not in excess 
of these amounts remaining in or on the raw agricultural commodities 
after this expiration date will not be considered actionable 
if the pesticide is legally applied during the term of, and 
in accordance with, the provisions of the experimental use permit 
and temporary tolerances. These tolerances may be revoked if 
the experimental use permit is revoked or if any experience 
with or scientific data on this pesticide indicate that such 
revocation is necessary to protect the public health. 
   The Office of Management and Budget has exempted this notice 
from the requirement of section 3 of Executive Order 12291. 
   Pursuant to the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act (Pub. L. 96-354, 94 Stat. 1164, 5 U.S.C. 601-612), the Administrator 
has determined that regulations establishing new tolerances 
or raising tolerance levels or establishing exemptions from 
tolerance requirements do not have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. A certification statement 
to this effect was published in the Federal Register of May 
4, 1981 (46 FR 24950). 
   Authority: 21 U.S.C. 346a(j). 
   Dated: May 26, 1993.
