proposal to establish a tolerance for the combined residues
of the herbicide fluroxypyr MHE and its metabolite fluroxypyr

cattle kidney, goat kidney, grass forage
and hay, hog kidney, horse
kidney, milk and sheep kidney are being removed from
because they expired on December 31, 2004.
Tolerances for Emergency Exemptions. FINAL RULE.
EPA, on its own initiative, in accordance with sections 408(e)
and 408(l)(6) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act
(FFDCA), 21 U.S.C. 346a, is establishing a tolerance for combined
residues of the herbicide fluroxypyr 1-methylheptyl ester
and its metabolite fluroxypyr
in or on
tolerance will expire and is revoked on June 30, 2007.
Although this tolerance will expire and is revoked on June
30, 2007, under section 408(l)(5) of the FFDCA, residues of
the pesticide not in excess of the amounts specified in the
tolerance remaining in or on onion after that date will not
be unlawful, provided the pesticide is applied in a manner
that was lawful under FIFRA, and the residues do not exceed
a level that was authorized by this tolerance at the time
of that application. EPA will take action
to revoke this tolerance earlier if any experience with, scientific
data on, or other relevant information on this pesticide indicate
that the residues are not safe.
this tolerance is being approved under emergency conditions
identified in the state of Colorado,
EPA has not made any decisions about whether fluroxypyr 1-methylheptyl
ester meets EPA's registration requirements for use on onion
or whether a permanent tolerance for this use would be appropriate.
of Tolerances for Emergency Exemptions. FINAL
RULE. EPA has authorized under FIFRA
section 18 the use of fluroxypyr 1-methylheptyl ester on field
corn and sweet corn for control of volunteer potatoes in
Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Wisconsin. This regulation
extends time-limited tolerances for residues of the herbicide
fluroxypyr 1-methylheptyl ester and
its metabolite fluroxypyr
in or on
sweet, K + CWHR
corn, field, stover
an additional 3-year period. These
tolerances will expire and are revoked on December 31, 2006.
Time-limited tolerances were originally published in the Federal
Register of August 5, 1998
FINAL RULE. Tolerances
are established for
combined residues of fluroxypyr 1-methylheptyl ester and its
metabolite Fluroxypyr [((4-amino-3,5-dichloro-6-fluoro-2-pyridinyl)oxy)
acetic acid], free and conjugated, all expressed as fluroxypyr.

i. Additional field trials - conduct
and submit four (4) additional field trials in Regions III
(1 trial), V(1 trial), XI(1 trial), and XII(1 trial). Residue
analysis of sweet corn field trial samples should
avoid using the DowElanco Method ACR 90.8, due to matrix
interference cited in PP#2G04066.
ii. Storage stability data - submit to support the sweet corn
field trial data.
