Dear Mr. Dellamano:

RE:  Special Local Need Registration for Agri-Mek 0.15 EC Miticide/ 
Insecticide (EPA Reg. No. 618-98) on Pears

The Department has approved your application to register the referenced 
pesticide product in New York State pursuant to Section 24(c) of the 
Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended.  
The Special Local Need (SLN) registration will permit the use of Agri-
Mek to control pear psylla on pears grown in New York State.

The registration has been issued the SLN Number NY-9600003.  This SLN 
registration for Agri-Mek on pears expires December 31, 1996.

We reviewed the submitted SLN labeling and have the following comments:

1.  Revise "SLN No. NY-9600000" in the box at the top of the submitted 
label to read "SLN No. NY-9600003."

2.  Place the EPA Registration Number (618-98) for Agri-Mek 0.15 EC 
Miticide/Insecticide at the top of the label directly below the bolded 
name of the product.

3.  Add the statement  "This labeling must be in the possession of the 
user at the time of pesticide application" to the Directions for Use 
Section.

A copy of the final printed labeling which incorporates the above 
revisions must be submitted to this office for final approval.  The 
Certificate of Registration for Agri-Mek is enclosed.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact Teresa 
Foster, of my staff, at (518) 457-7446.

Sincerely,

Maureen P. Serafini
Supervisor
Pesticide Product Registration Section
