  Enclosed is the latest notice of the Reregistration Notification Network
  (RNN) dated May 6, 1994.  This notification contains a listing of several
  cancellations, revocations, and other items of interest.  Of special note
  is EPA's proposal concerning granular carbofuran and the proposed
  revocation for residues of several canceled pesticides.
                          U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
                                Volume 4, Number 5
The intent of this network is to inform interested parties of recent or
impending pesticide use cancellations, tolerance revocations, and other items of agricultural interest.  To the best of our knowledge, the uses mentioned here, unless otherwise indicated, will not appear on any label registered by the USEPA after those uses are canceled.  We recommend that you express any concerns or questions you have to the contact mentioned below or to your NAPIAP State Liaison Representative.  If you wish to contact us at USDA, our phone number is (301) 504-8846, and our fax number is (301) 504-8063.
===========================================================================  granular       The USEPA has proposed to deny the request from FMC
carbofuran     reinstatem the use of granular carbofuran on CORN and
               SORGHUM, but to grant FMC's request for an extension of two
               years to the phase-out period on RICE.  These three uses of
               granular carbofuran are currently being phased out
               according to the terms on an Agreement in Principle between 
               FMC Corp. and the USEPA that concluded the Special Review 
               of granulacarbofuran in 1991.  The USEPA finds no basis for 
               reinstating either corn or sorghum uses of granular 
               carbofuran and the final date of use on these crops remains 
               9/1/94.  The USEPA is proposing the extension of use on 
               rice until 9/1/97 because there are currently no 
               efficacious alternatives; they are encouraging the 
               registration of reduced risk alternatives to
               control rice weevil.  Written comments, identified by OPP-
