1. This list was compiled from the EPA's Tolerance Index System (TIS) on 5/13/98. Changes to tolerances are published in the Federal Register. Crop sites DO NOT INCLUDE: (1)Animal Feeds; (2) Processed Food; (3) Distinctions in crop varieties; (4) Livestock (cattle, goats, horses, poultry & sheep),milk, eggs. However, the number in the last column does include those tolerances.

2. This list may include crop sites which are no longer registered domestically. Future versions of this list will delete or distinguish crop sites which are not registered domestically.

3. Proposed tolerance revocation 2/5/98.

4. Ethyl and methyl parathion share tolerances; see 40 CFR 180.121.
