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 those 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-

ethylan      The USEPA has revoked the tolerances for residues of ethylan on
 (Perthane)  or in APPLES, BROCCOLI, BRUSSELS SPROUTS, CABBAGE, CAULIFLOWER,
             CHERRIES, KOHLRABI, LETTUCE, MEAT, MILK, PEARS, and SPINACH as
             of 9/30/94.  The last products containing this insecticide were
             canceled in 1990 and the distribution of these products
             apparently stopped in 1985.  Consequently, the USEPA is not
             recommending action levels for this pesticide.  The proposal
             for this revocation was published here on 6/30/94 and the USEPA
             did not receive any public comments in response to the proposed
             rule.
