     The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has approved
your FIFRA 2(ee)request to add the unnamed pest, thrips on cabbage, to the

request for the use of Cygon 400 (EPA Reg. No. 241-233) to control an unnamed
target pest, thrips on cabbage. Cygon 400 is no longer registered for use in New
York State. Therefore, we are approving your 2(ee) request for use of the
following dimethoate product, as specified, on thrips on cabbage at the rate
of 0.25-0.5 lbs a.i. per acre. All other label conditions will apply:
