  azocosterol HCl    Avitrol Corporation plans to allow its toxicant,
   (Ornitrol)        Ornitrol, to be canceled as of 11/23/93.  It is
                     registered for use on AGRICULTURAL PREMISES for pigeon
                     control.  They feel the cost of reregistration does not
                     justify continued registration.  The registrant will be
                     allowed to sell and distribute their product for 1-year
                     following cancellation; users and retailers will be
                     allowed to use and sell this product until existing
                     stocks are exhausted.
