US registrants to drop methomyl uses

The US EPA has notified receipt of an application from registrants of the carbamate insecticide, methomyl, to cancel its use on barley, oats and rye. The application was made by the technical registrants, DuPont, Rotam and Sinon Corporation, and the end-use registrants, DuPont, MacDermid Agricultural Solutions, Rotam and Sinon USA. The registrants agreed to remove some uses from labels earlier this year in order to reduce dietary risks from drinking water exposure. The restrictions were agreed during the risk assessment phase of the registration review for methomyl. Once the EPA has approved labels reflecting the requested amendments, the registrants will be allowed to sell previously labelled stocks for up to 18 months. Persons other than the registrants would be able to sell the products until stocks are exhausted.
