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) 504-8063.
oxydemeton-methyl  The USEPA has issued an intent to cancel all products of
 (Metasystox R)    oxydemeton-methyl based on a request for voluntary
                   cancellation from all of its registrants.  Notice of this
                   request was made here on 11/5/93, along with a list of
                   sites affected.  Unless this request is withdrawn by
                   6/9/94, the USEPA is likely to publish the cancellation of
                   this insecticide-miticide.  Existing stocks may be sold or
                   shipped by the registrants until 9/30/94.  Existing stocks
                   in the hands of dealers and users may be shipped, sold,
                   and used until such supplies are exhausted.
