Dear Ms. Cain:

Re: Special Local Needs (SLN) Labeling for Sencor® DF 75% Dry Flowable Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 3125-325) for Use on Peas

    The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation ("The Department") has completed review of your application, received March 29, 2001, to register a Special Local Needs (SLN) label for Sencor® DF 75% Dry Flowable Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 3125-325) for use on peas.

    The subject SLN proposes use of Sencor® DF 75% Dry Flowable Herbicide for postemergence application for the suppression of certain broadleaf weeds in peas. The proposed supplemental (SLN) labeling allows one postemergence application at a rate of 2-2_ oz. Sencor® DF 75 Sencor DF per acre per season (0.0938 - 0.125 lb. metribuzin per acre per season). Based on the information submitted by Bayer Corporation and the supporting research conducted by Cornell University, the Department has determined that a special local need exists.

    Therefore, under the authority of Section 24(c) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, the Department hereby grants a SLN registration for Sencor® DF 75% Dry Flowable Herbicide for postemergence application for the suppression of certain broadleaf weeds in peas. The SLN registration is assigned EPA SLN No. NY-010003.

    Enclosed for your records are the Certificate of Pesticide Registration and copy of the New York State stamped "Accepted" draft supplemental (SLN) labeling (NYSNSL01_001). Within 30 days of receipt of this letter, you must provide this office with three copies of final printed SLN labeling bearing the assigned registration number.
