perfluidone   PBI/Gordon Corporation plans to voluntarily cancel the use of
 (Destun)     perfluidone on TOBACCO due to the cost of reregistration.  
              This is the last registered use of this herbicide; it has not 
              been marketed in the U.S. for several years.  Unless 
              withdrawn by the registrant, this cancellation becomes final 
              on 10/18/94. PBI/Gordon will consider continuing this use if 
              another party wishes to develop the required data.  If 
              cancelled, existing stocks of perfluidone in the hands of 
              dealers and users can be distributed, sold or used until such 
              stocks are depleted.
