       The intent of this network is to inform interested parties of
       recent or impending pesticide use cancellations and tolerance
       revocations.  To the best of our knowledge the uses mentioned
       here, unless otherwise indicated, will not appear on any label
       registered by the USEPA following their expected cancellation.  We
       would recommend that you express any concerns or questions you may
       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) 504-8063.
       ==================================================================
       ethion   FMC Corporation will voluntarily delete the use of ethion
                on APPLES, BERMUDA GRASS, CHERRIES, GRAPES, MELONS,
                PEARS, SUMMER SQUASH, TURF and ORNAMENTALS(GREENHOUSE)
                due to the cost of studies for reregistration.  They plan
                to support the one remaining use on citrus.  If anyone
                wishes to supply the necessary data on any of the crops
                being deleted, FMC will support the reregistration of
                ethion on those uses.  Otherwise, these proposed
                deletions will become final on 5/25/93.
