US EPA to OK Stockton's Timorex Gold - clarification

The US EPA intends to grant tolerance exemptions for the use of Israeli company Stockton's biofungicide, Timorex Gold, for "many" crops despite ambiguous wording in its proposed registration decision (Agrow No 694, p 31), the company tells Agrow. Timorex Gold is based on tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) oil. The available data indicate that residues of tea tree oil are unlikely to be present on edible commodities when used at the recommended application rate, the EPA notes. It has made non-food use determinations, with limitations, for the following food commodities: leafy and fruiting vegetables, cucurbit vegetables, berries, tree nuts, cereal grains, avocadoes, bananas, mangos, papayas, passion fruit, plantains and peanuts. The proposed approval is subject to public comment until August 28th.
