  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 following the uses expected cancellation.  We recommend that you

  ============================================================================
  oxydemeton-methyl  Miles Inc. has requested, as of 10/1/93, the voluntary
   (Metasystox-R)    cancellation of all uses of its insecticide-miticide,
                     Metasystox-R.  Following the USEPA acceptance of this
                     action, it is unlikely there will be any registrations
                     left for oxydemeton-methyl.  It is presently registered
                     on the sites listed here:
 
  ALFALFA(SEED), APPLES(ORN-NB), APRICOTS(NB), BEANS, BEANS(LIMA),
  BEANS(SNAP), BROCCOLI, BROCCOLI RAAB(CA only), BRUSSELS SPROUTS, CABBAGE,
  CABBAGE(CHINESE), CANTALOUPES, CAULIFLOWER, CHERRIES(NB), CHRISTMAS
  TREES(MI, NC, OH and WA only) CITRUS(NB), CLOVER, CORN, CORN(FIELD),
  CORN(POP), CORN(SWEET), CRABAPPLES(NB), CUCUMBERS, COTTON, DOUGLAS-FIR
  (OR and WA only), EGGPLANT, FILBERTS(OR and WA only), FLOWERING PLANTS
  (ORN), GRAPEFRUIT, GRAPES(NB), LEMONS, LETTUCE(HEAD), MELONS, 
  MUSKMELONS, NECTARINES(NB), NURSERY STOCK(OR and WA only), ONIONS(BULB),
  ONIONS(SPANISH), ORANGES, PEACHES(NB), PEARS, PECANS(NB), PEPPERMINT,
  PEPPERS, PLUMS(NB), PRUNES(NB), PUMPKINS, QUINCES(NB), SAFFLOWER,
  SHRUBS(ORN), SORGHUM(GRAIN), SPEARMINT, SQUASH, SQUASH(SUMMER),
  SQUASH(WINTER), STRAWBERRIES(OR and WA only), SUGARBEETS, TREES(ORN),
  TURNIPS, WALNUTS, and WATERMELONS.

  (NB = nonbearing, ORN = ornamental, CA = California, MI = Michigan, 
  NC = North Carolina, OH = Ohio, OR = Oregon, and WA = Washington State)
 
  It is expected that the USEPA will grant 1-year of sales of existing stocks
  of this pesticide by the registrant following cancellation; existing stocks
  will likely be allowed to be sold by retailers and used until exhausted.
