10/24/07 Application for Registration. This notice announces receipt of an application 84185-G and 84185-U from Plasma Power of India and 93945-R from Coeur D'Alene Fiber fuels Inc., to register pesticide products containing neem Oil, an insecticide for agricultural food use at 100%.
10/17/07 Draft White Paper Regarding StarLink Corn Dietary Risk and Exposure - EPA is seeking public comment on a White Paper that recommends an end to routine testing for StarLink™ corn in the food supply. Testing of yellow corn started in 2000 following the detection of illegal residues of StarLink™ in the food supply. Since StarLink™ corn has not been planted since 2000, levels have steadily decreased to where new detections are virtually non-existent. After a thorough analysis, EPA has concluded that potential exposure of the U.S. population to the Cry9C protein in StarLink™ corn in the current U.S. food supply is extremely low, and continued testing of corn grain by grain handlers and millers for the presence of Cry9C provides no additional human health protection. EPA’s analysis supports the FDA proposal to withdraw its recommendation that dry milling facilities and masa operations test yellow corn shipments for the presence of StarLink-derived Cry9C.
10/3/07 Tolerance Exemption Requested - EPA announces the receipt of a pesticide tolerance petition filed by AgriVir requesting the agency to establish a temporary exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of of the microbial pesticide Indian Meal Moth Granulosis Virus (Indian meal moth Granulosis virus infected Indian meal moth larval parts homogenized with heat treated wheat bran and brewer's yeast by-products) when used in or on all food commodities.'

September
9/19/07 Registration Review Docket Established - EPA has established a registration review docket for Pseudomonas syringae, a fungicide used on apples, pears, lemons, oranges, or grapefruit and is opening the public comment period for the registration review. Pseudomonas syringae is used for preventing various fungal diseases that occur after harvest on apples, pears, and certain citrus fruits. Based on extensive testing and the methods used in applying the bacteria to the fruit, these bacterial strains are not expected to harm either humans or the environment when used in pesticide products. Furthermore, these fungicides have the potential to decrease the use of other, more toxic fungicides that they may replace.
9/19/07 Registration Review Docket Established - EPA has established a registration review docket for Pseudomonas fluorescens, and is opening the public comment period. This naturally occurring bacteria prevents or reduces frost damage to plants by displacing bacteria that induce ice formation. Pseudomonas fluorescens, uses on certain fruit crops, almonds, potatoes, and tomatoes to prevent or reduce the growth of frost-forming bacteria on leaves and blossoms - Use of the bacteria as a pesticide active ingredient is not expected to cause adverse effects to humans or the environment. When used with other pesticide products, Pseudomonas fluorescens A506 can help suppress fire blight and discoloration on pear and apple crops, and bunch rot in grapes.
9/19/07 Registration Review Docket Established - EPA has established a registration review docket for Chitin, used for controlling soil nematodes on ornamentals, turf, and many food and non-food crops and is opening the public comment period. Chitin is used for controlling soil nematodes on ornamentals, turf, and many food and non-food crops at commercial and residential sites. The active ingredient is isolated from the shells of crustaceans, especially crabs and shrimp. Given its lack of toxicity, chitin is not expected to harm people, pets, wildlife, or the environment when used according to label directions.
9/12/07 Application for Experimental Use Permit - This notice announces receipt of an application 264-EUP-RUG from Bayer CropScience , requesting an experimental use permit (EUP) for the plant-incorporated protectant Cry2Ae in cotton on a total of 688 acres in the States of MS, NC, SC, TN and TX.

1/10/07 Tolerance Exemption Established - This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of the microbial active ingredient Beauveria bassiana HF23 (B. bassiana HF23) on all food and feed commodities when applied/used to treat chicken manure which will eventually be processed and used as fertilizer on agricultural crops. Jabb of the Carolinas submitted a petition to EPA requesting an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. This regulation eliminates the need to establish a maximum permissible level for residues of B. bassiana HF23.
