       have to the contact mentioned below or your NAPIAP State Liaison
       Representative.  If you wish to contact us at USDA, our phone

       methiocarb   AMVAC Chemical Corporation is deleting CITRUS and
        (Mesurol)   AVOCADOS from their registration of methiocarb
                    (Metaldehyde-Methiocarb Granules 2-1).  The basic
                    producer of this insecticide-miticide-mollusicide-
                    repellent, Miles Inc., has decided to drop all food
                    uses of methiocarb due to the cost of reregistration.
                    This action will be final on 5/25/93.  Existing
                    stocks in the hands of retailers or users may be sold
                    and used as labeled until exhausted.
