II. New Active Ingredients

    1. 2-Methyl-1-butanol. Docket number: EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0125. 
Description of new active ingredient: EPA received an application from 
Bull Run Scientific, VBT, Beaufont Springs Dr., Suite 300, Richmond, VA 
23225, to register a pesticide product (EPA File Symbol 84565-T) 
containing the active ingredient, 2-methyl-1-butanol. At the time of 
submission of the application for registration, this active ingredient 
was not contained in any pesticide products registered with the Agency.
    Regulatory conclusions: The application was approved on February 3, 
2010, for Disposable Bull Run Yellowjacket Trap E (EPA Registration 
Number 84565-7) for use as an attractant in traps intended to capture 
hornets and wasps. The Agency approved the application considering data 
on risks associated with the proposed use of 2-methyl-1-butanol, and 
information on social, economic, and environmental benefits to be 
derived from use. Specifically, the Agency has considered the nature of 
the biochemical pesticide and its pattern of use, application methods 
and rates, and level and extent of potential exposure. Based on these 
reviews, the Agency was able to make basic health and safety 
determinations that show use of 2-methyl-1-butanol, when used in 
accordance with widespread and commonly recognized practice, will not 
generally cause unreasonable adverse effects on the environment.
    Missing data & conditions for submission: All data requirements 
have been satisfied, and this pesticide product has been granted an 
unconditional registration.
    Response to comments: EPA published a notice of receipt in the 
Federal Register of March 16, 2009 (74 FR 11098), which announced that 
Bull Run Scientific VBT had submitted an application to register a 
pesticide product containing the new active ingredient, 2-methyl-1-
butanol, for use as an attractant in traps intended to capture hornets 
and wasps. Moreover, in order to increase the transparency of the 
Agency's pesticide registration decisions, the Agency began to 
implement a public participation process for certain registration 
actions (i.e., new active ingredients, first food uses, first outdoor 
uses, first residential uses, and other actions of significant interest 
to the public) on October 1, 2009. As this application was for a 
pesticide product containing a new active ingredient, the proposed 
decision, risk assessment, and draft label associated with this 
pesticide product were added to the docket prior to registration to 
allow a meaningful opportunity for the public to provide substantive 
comments. The start of the 30-day public participation comment period 
was announced on the Agency's web site http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/regulating/registration-public-involvement.html on December 15, 2009. 
There were no comments received in response to the notice of receipt or 
during the 30-day public participation process occurring immediately 
prior to the final registration decision. Contact: Chris Pfeifer, (703)

95618-6320, to register a pesticide product (EPA File Symbol 69592-EL) 
containing the active ingredient, Extract of Chenopodium ambrosioides 
near ambrosioides (ECANA) Mimic. (During the application process, the 
active ingredient name was subsequently changed to Terpene Constituents 
of the Extract of Chenopodium ambrosioides near ambrosioides (ECANA) as 
Synthetically Manufactured to more accurately describe its synthetic 
origin.) At the time of submission of the application for registration, 
this active ingredient was not contained in any pesticide products

economic,

[[Page 52740]]

and environmental benefits to be derived from use. Specifically, the 
Agency has considered the nature of the biochemical pesticide and its 
pattern of use, application methods and rates, and level and extent of 
potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency was able to make 
basic health and safety determinations that show use of Terpene 
Constituents of ECANA as Synthetically Manufactured, when used in 
accordance with widespread and commonly recognized practice, will not 
generally cause unreasonable adverse effects on the environment.
    Missing data & conditions for submission: QRD 452, EPA Registration 
Number 69592-22, was conditionally registered. A conditional 
registration may be granted under section 3(c)(7)(C) of FIFRA for a new 
active ingredient where certain data are lacking, on condition that 
such data are received by the end of the conditional registration 
period and do not meet or exceed the risk criteria set forth in 40 CFR 
154.7; that use of the pesticide during the conditional registration 
period will not cause unreasonable adverse effects; and that use of the 
pesticide is in the public interest. The Agency has considered the 
available data on the risks associated with the proposed use of Terpene 
Constituents of ECANA as Synthetically Manufactured, and information on 
social, economic, and environmental benefits to be derived from such 
use. Specifically, the Agency has considered the nature and its pattern 
of use, application methods and rates, and level and extent of 
potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency was able to make 
basic health and safety determinations which show that use of Terpene 
Constituents of ECANA as Synthetically Manufactured during the period 
of conditional registration will not cause any unreasonable adverse 
effect on the environment, and that use of the pesticide is, in the 
public interest.
    Consistent with section 3(c)(7)(C) of FIFRA, the Agency has 
determined that these conditional registrations are in the public 
interest. Use of the pesticides are of significance to the user 
community, and appropriate labeling, use directions, and other measures 
have been taken to ensure that use of the pesticides will not result in 
unreasonable adverse effects to man and the environment.
    All data requirements, except one product chemistry requirement, 
have been fully satisfied; and this pesticide product has been granted 
a conditional registration. The Agency has required submission of an 
additional Preliminary Analysis per 40 CFR 158.2030 (OPPTS Guideline 
830.1700) by June 21, 2011 for QRD 452 (EPA Registration Number 69592-
25).

    8. Ulocladium oudemansii (U3 Strain). Docket number: EPA-HQ-OPP-
2010-0553. Description of new active ingredient: EPA received 
applications from Botry-Zen, Ltd., 21 Willis St., P.O. Box 5664, 
Dunedin, New Zealand, to register pesticide products (EPA File Symbols 
75747-R, and 75747-E) containing the active ingredient, Ulocladium 
oudemansii (U3 Strain). At the time of submission of the applications 
for registration, this active ingredient was not contained in any 
pesticide products registered with the Agency.
    Regulatory conclusions: The applications were approved on October 
19, 2009, for Ulocladium oudemansii Technical (EPA Registration Number 
75747-1) for manufacturing or formulating use only and BOTRY-Zen[reg] 
(EPA Registration Number 75747-2) for use on fruit and vegetable crops 
and ornamental plants. The Agency approved the applications considering 
data on risks associated with the proposed use of Ulocladium oudemansii 
(U3 Strain), and information on social, economic, and environmental 
benefits to be derived from use. Specifically, the Agency has 
considered the nature of the microbial pesticide and its pattern of 
use, application methods and rates, and level and extent of potential 
exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency was able to make basic 
health and safety determinations that show use of Ulocladium oudemansii 
(U3 Strain), when used in accordance with widespread and commonly 
recognized practice, will not generally cause unreasonable adverse 
effects on the environment.
    Missing data & conditions for submission: All data requirements 
have been satisfied, and these pesticide products have been granted 
unconditional registrations.
    Response to comments: EPA published a notice of receipt in the 
Federal Register of October 29, 2008 (73 FR 64325) (FRL-8386-5), which 
announced that Botry-Zen, Ltd. had submitted applications to register 
pesticide products containing the new active ingredient, Ulocladium 
oudemansii (U3 Strain), for use on fruit and vegetable crops and 
ornamental plants. Moreover, in order to increase the transparency of 
the Agency's pesticide registration decisions, the Agency began to 
implement a public participation process for certain registration 
actions (i.e., new active ingredients, first food uses, first outdoor 
uses, first residential uses, and other actions of significant interest 
to the public) on October 1, 2009. As these applications were for 
pesticide products containing a new active ingredient, the proposed 
decision, risk assessments, and draft labels associated with these 
pesticide products were to have been added to the docket prior to 
registration to allow a meaningful opportunity for the public to 
provide substantive comments. However, given the Agency finding that 
Ulocladium oudemansii (U3 strain) has very low toxicity and presents 
little if any risk to non-target organisms, EPA concluded in October of 
2009 that it was in the best interests of the public and the 
environment to issue the registration for Ulocladium oudemansii (U3 
strain) without delay. Therefore, consistent with the Agency's approach 
for making these registration actions more transparent, EPA issued 
these two registrations for an initial period of 1 year and, concurrent 
with such issuance, provided a 30-day public comment period. The start 
of the 30-day public participation comment period was announced on the 
Agency's web site http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/regulating/registration-public-involvement.html on October 20, 2009. As there were

    9. Coat protein gene of plum pox virus also known as the CPG-PPV, 
or plum pox resistance gene (plum pox viral coat protein gene). Docket 
number: EPA-HQ-OPP-2010-0554. Description of new active ingredient: EPA 
received an application from Interregional Research Project Number 4 
(IR-4) of Rutgers University, 500 College Rd. East, Suite 201 W., 
Princeton, NJ 08540 on behalf of the United States Department of 
Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service-Appalachian Fruit Research 
Station (USDA-ARS-AFRS), 2217 Wiltshire Rd., Kearneysville, WV 25430, 
to register a pesticide product (EPA File Symbol 11312-I) containing 
the active ingredient, coat protein gene of plum pox virus. At the time 
of submission of the application for registration, this active 
ingredient was not contained in any pesticide products registered with 
the Agency.
    Regulatory conclusions: The application was approved on May 7, 2010 
for C5 HoneySweet Plum (EPA Registration Number 11312-8) for resistance 
to plum pox virus infection. The Agency approved the application 
considering data on risks associated with the proposed use of the coat 
protein gene of plum pox virus, and information on social, economic, 
and environmental benefits to be derived from use. Specifically, the 
Agency has considered the nature of the plant-incorporated protectant 
and its pattern of use, application methods and rates, and level and 
extent of potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency was 
able to make basic health and safety determinations showing that the 
coat protein gene of plum pox virus,

[[Page 52742]]

when used in accordance with widespread and commonly recognized 
practice, will not generally cause unreasonable adverse effects on the 
environment.
    Missing data & conditions for submission: C5 HoneySweet Plum, EPA 
Registration Number 11312-8, was conditionally registered. A 
conditional registration may be granted under section 3(c)(7)(C) of 
FIFRA for a new active ingredient where certain data are lacking, on 
condition that such data are received by the end of the conditional 
registration period and do not meet or exceed the risk criteria set 
forth in 40 CFR 154.7; that use of the pesticide during the conditional 
registration period will not cause unreasonable adverse effects; and 
that use of the pesticide is in the public interest. The Agency has 
considered the available data on the risks associated with the proposed 
use of the coat protein gene of plum pox virus, and information on 
social, economic, and environmental benefits to be derived from such 
use. Specifically, the Agency has considered the nature and its pattern 
of use, application methods and rates, and level and extent of 
potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency was able to make 
basic health and safety determinations which show that use of the coat 
protein gene of plum pox virus during the period of conditional 
registration will not cause any unreasonable adverse effect on the 
environment, and that use of the pesticide is, in the public interest.
    Consistent with section 3(c)(7)(C) of FIFRA, the Agency has 
determined that these conditional registrations are in the public 
interest. Use of the pesticides are of significance to the user 
community, and appropriate labeling, use directions, and other measures 
have been taken to ensure that use of the pesticides will not result in 
unreasonable adverse effects to man and the environment.
    All data requirements, except one product analysis requirement, 
have been fully satisfied; and this pesticide product has been granted 
a 1 year conditional registration, to expire at midnight of May 7, 
2011. The Agency has required submission of an Analysis of Samples 
validation per 40 CFR 158.2120 (OPPTS Guideline 885.1400) by November 
7, 2008 for C5 HoneySweet Plum (EPA Registration Number 11312-8).
    Response to comments: EPA published a notice of receipt in the 
Federal Register of October 29, 2008 (73 FR 64325) (FRL-8386-5), which 
announced that IR-4 (on behalf of USDA-ARS-AFRS) had submitted an 
application to register a pesticide product containing the new active 
ingredient, the coat protein gene of plum pox virus, which induces 
resistance to plum pox virus infection in C5 HoneySweet Plums. 
Moreover, in order to increase the transparency of the Agency's 
pesticide registration decisions, the Agency began to implement a 
public participation process for certain registration actions (i.e., 
new active ingredients, first food uses, first outdoor uses, first 
residential uses, and other actions of significant interest to the 
public) on October 1, 2009. As this application was for a pesticide 
product containing a new active ingredient, the proposed decision, risk 
assessment, and draft label associated with this pesticide product were 
added to the docket prior to registration to allow a meaningful 
opportunity for the public to provide substantive comments. The start 
of the 30-day public participation comment period was announced on the 
Agency's web site http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/regulating/registration-public-involvement.html on April 1, 2010. EPA received 66

approved the application considering data on risks associated with the 
proposed use

[[Page 52743]]

of Cold Pressed Neem Oil, and information on social, economic, and 
environmental benefits to be derived from use. Specifically, the Agency 
has considered the nature of the biochemical pesticide and its pattern 
of use, application methods and rates, and level and extent of 
potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency was able to make 
basic health and safety determinations that show use of Cold Pressed 
Neem Oil, when used in accordance with widespread and commonly 
recognized practice, will not generally cause unreasonable adverse 
effects on the environment.
    Missing data & conditions for submission: None of the pesticide 
product(s) have missing data: All data requirements have been 
satisfied, and these pesticide products have been granted unconditional 
registrations.
    Response to comments: EPA published a notice of receipt in the 
Federal Register of October 24, 2007 (72 FR 60365) (FRL-8152-7), which 
announced that Plasma Power Limited of India had submitted an 
application to register pesticide products containing the new active 
ingredient, Cold Pressed Neem Oil, for use on food and non-food crops. 
Moreover, in order to increase the transparency of the Agency's 
pesticide registration decisions, the Agency began to implement a 
public participation process for certain registration actions (i.e., 
new active ingredients, first food uses, first outdoor uses, first 
residential uses, and other actions of significant interest to the 
public) on October 1, 2009. As this application was for pesticide 
products containing a new active ingredient, the proposed decision, 
risk assessment, and draft labels associated with these pesticide 
products were added to the docket prior to registration to allow a 
meaningful opportunity for the public to provide substantive comments. 
However, given the Agency finding that Cold Pressed Neem Oil has very 
low toxicity and presents little if any risk to non-target organisms, 
EPA concluded in October of 2009 that it was in the best interests of 
the public and the environment to issue the registration for Cold 
Pressed Neem Oil without delay. Therefore, consistent with the Agency's 
approach for making these registration actions more transparent, EPA 
issued these two registrations for an initial period of 1-year and, 
concurrent with such issuance, provided a 30-day public comment period. 
The start of the 30-day public participation comment period was 
announced on the Agency's web site http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/regulating/registration-public-involvement.html on October 15, 2009. As 
there were no comments received in response to the notice of receipt or 
during the 30-day public participation process occuring concurrently 
with the final registration decision, the 1-year time-limitation was 
removed from EPA Registration No. 84185-3 and EPA Registration No.
