Dear Mr. Smith:

Re: FIFRA 2(ee) Recommendation for Dimethoate Use to Add a Pest Not on The Label

    The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) has approved your FIFRA 2(ee) recommendation to add the unnamed pest, thrips on cabbage, to the following list of dimethoate products. In 1992 and again in 1999, the Department approved your 2(ee) requests for the use of other dimethoate products to control an unnamed pest, thrips on cabbage. Several of these products are no longer registered for use in New York State. Therefore, we are approving your 2(ee) request for the use of the following dimethoate products, as specified, on thrips on cabbage at the rate of 0.25 to 0.5 lbs a.i. per acre. All other label conditions will apply:

EPA Reg. No. Product Name Product Rate PHI
70-113-192 Dexol Cygon 2E 1/2 pt - 1 pt. 7

Systemic Insecticide (2/3 - 1 1/3 tsp/gal)

51036-110-9779 Dimate 4EC 1/2 pt - 1 pt. 3

    Anyone treating cabbages for thrips on cabbage with Dimethoate under this recommendation must have the recommendation in their possession at the time of application.

    Enclosed is the stamped "accepted" copy of the recommendation as it is to appear in the Cornell Recommends. If you have any questions regarding this letter, please contact Ms. Hackett, of my staff, at (518) 402-8768.
