SUMMARY: In accordance with the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and

for amendments by registrants to delete uses in certain pesticide 
registrations. FIFRA provides that a registrant of a pesticide product

acting on the request, EPA must publish a notice of receipt of any

unless the Agency receives a written withdrawal request on or before 
August 26, 2013. The Agency will consider a withdrawal request 
postmarked no later than August 26, 2013.
    Users of these products who desire continued use on crops or sites 
being deleted should contact the applicable registrant in Table 1 
before August 26, 2013.
