Enclosed is the latest notice of the Reregistration Notification Network 

(RNN) dated June 30, 1994.  The USEPA has recently made available to the 

public an interesting document titled, "Pesticide Industry Sales and

Usage - 1992 and 1993 Market Estimates."  This 33-page document summarizes 
through charts and figures the current status of pesticide usage in the 

U.S.  It can be obtained without cost (single copies only) by requesting 

publication number 733-K-94-001 from the USEPA by mail at NCEPI, P.O. Box 

42419, Cincinnati, Ohio 45242-2419, by calling (513) 891-6561 or by faxing 
your order to (513) 891-6685.

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.
