Volume 4, Number 1
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 these 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.
demeton The USEPA has proposed the revocation of all tolerances and feed
(Systox) additive regulations for residues of demeton. All products
containing this insecticide were canceled by 1989. The USEPA
believes that sufficient time has elapsed in order for residues
to dissipate and therefore is not recommending the establishment
of action levels in place of any revoked demeton tolerances.
This insecticide was once registered on over 45 fruits,
vegetables, grains, and animal feeds. Written comments,
identified by OPP-300316, should be sent to the Public Response
Section of EPA by 3/21/94.
