III. Summary of Public Comments Received and Agency Response to Comments

The Agency received one comment indicating that all pesticides should be disallowed because of their effect on the environment. This did not merit further review of the requests.

Section 6(f)(1) of FIFRA provides that a registrant of a pesticide product may at any time request that any of its pesticide registrations be canceled or amended to terminate one or more uses.

Thereafter, following the public comment period, the EPA Administrator may approve such a request.
