Dear Mr. Smith:

Re:  FIFRA 2 (ee) Recommendation For Use of Carbaryl on
     Grapes to Control a Pest not on the Label

     The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has approved
your 2(ee) request for the use of carbaryl contained in the pesticide products
Sevin 50W (EPA Reg. No. 264-314) and Sevin 80W (EPA Reg. No. 264-316) on
grapes for control of the banded grape bug, Tydia scrupea (Miridae), a pest
not on the label for grapes.  The recommended use rate is 1-4 lb/acre for
Sevin 50W or 0.75-2.5 lb/acre for Sevin 80W to give an application rate of 0.5
to 2.0 lb a.i./acre.

     Enclosed is a stamped copy of the accepted recommendation.  Anyone using
Sevin 50W or Sevin 80W under this recommendation must have the recommendation
in their possession at the time of application.

     If you have any questions on this matter, please contact Betty Seeley, of
my staff, at (518) 457-7446.

Proposed FIFRA 2(ee) Recommendation

     The use of carbaryl (Sevin 50W and 80 S) for control of the banded grape
bug, Tydia scrupea.

Researcher and Title:

     Dr. Greg English-Loeb, Assistant Professor, Dept. Entomology

Pesticide name and EPA Registration No.:

     Sevin (carbaryl) 50W (EPA: 264-314), Sevin 80S (EPA: 264-316)

Target Crop:


Proposed Application Rate:

     Range from 0.5 to 2.0 lb a.i./acre

Nature of 2(ee) Variation from Product Label:

     Extend the use of carbaryl to the banded grape bug, Tydia scrupea . This
insect is currently not included on label. We want permission to recommend the
use of sevin for its control in the Pest Management Recommendations for

Complete Recommendation as it will Appear in the Cornell Recommends:

Banded Grape              Sevin 50% WP              1-4 lb
Bug                       OR Sevin 80S              0.75-2.5 lb

Note: In late May (15 to 22 May), scout vineyards for BGB, paying particular
attention to border areas in GBM-RA high-risk blocks. Infestation levels
greater than 1 nymph per ten shoots can cause crop loss. Carbaryl applied
before the second week in June will prevent economic injury. Infestations do
not occur in most vineyards, and are often concentrated in vineyard edges,
therefore it may not be necessary to treat the entire vineyard.
