Notice of Receipt of Requests for Amendments to Delete Uses in 
Certain Pesticide Registrations

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, 
Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended, EPA is issuing a 
notice of receipt of request for amendments by registrants to delete 
uses in certain pesticide registrations. 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 amended to delete 
one or more uses. FIFRA further provides that, before acting on the 
request, EPA must publish a notice of receipt of any request in the 
Federal Register.

DATES: Unless the Agency receives a written withdrawal request on or 
before July 9, 2012, the deletions are effective July 9, 2012, because 
the registrants requested a waiver of the 180-day comment period. Users 
of these products who desire continued use on crops or sites being 
deleted should contact the applicable registrant on or before July 9, 
2012.
