Dear Mr. Kubecka:

Re: Registration of Revised Special Local Need Labeling for Dual Magnum Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 100-816)

    The Department has completed its review of your revised label, received April 26, 2004, for the Special Local Need (SLN) for the above-mentioned product.

    The SLN labeling contained use directions for direct-seeded cabbage, transplanted cabbage, transplanted peppers and dry bulb onions. The revised SLN labeling adds use directions for asparagus, carrots (high organic matter (>20%) muck soils only), green onions, spinach and swiss chard. The SLN labeling also states that it may not be used in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. This exclusion also appears on the federally registered label for Dual Magnum Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 100-816).

    Therefore, under the authority of Section 24(c) of FIFRA, the Department hereby accepts the revised Special Local Need labeling for Dual Magnum Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 100-816). The Special Local Need registration number remains unchanged as SLN No. NY-990001.

    A copy of the revised New York State stamped "ACCEPTED" SLN labeling for Dual Magnum Herbicide is enclosed for your records.

    Please be reminded that a copy of the accepted SLN label must be in the possession of the user at the time of pesticide application.

    Please contact Ms. Jeanine Broughel, of my staff, at (518) 402-8768, if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Samuel J. Jackling
Chief
Pesticide Product Registration Section
