  November 5, 1993
  SUBJECT:  Reregistration Notification
       TO:  Users of the RNN
     FROM:  Dr. Nancy N. Ragsdale
            Director, NAPIAP
  Enclosed is a latest notice of the Reregistration Notification Network
  (RNN) dated November 5, 1993.  This issue of the RNN deals with several
  residue tolerance revocations and pesticide use cancellations.   
                         U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
                              Volume 3, Number 14
  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 following the uses expected cancellation.  We recommend that you
  express any concerns or questions you have to the contact mentioned below or
  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-
  carbophenothion    The USEPA has proposed the revocation of all tolerances
   (Trithion)        for residues of carbophenothion.  This insecticide and
                     miticide was canceled in 1989.  Because existing stocks
                     are believed to be depleted, and treated agricultural
                     commodities are believed to have passed through the
                     channels of trade, no action levels will be 
                     recommended to replace the tolerances upon their
                     revocation. Carbophenothion was registered for use on
                     over 60 sites. Written comments, identified by OPP-
                     300297, should be sent to the Public Response Branch 
                     of EPA by 11/22/93.
