flutolanil (Moncoat) NYS DEC Letter - Registration of a Major Label Change 12/02

Although flutolanil is very persistent and moderately mobile, the low application rate and method per the MonCoat MZTM use pattern should mitigate the potential for flutolanil to impact groundwater resources. In addition, the mobility of flutolanil decreases with decreasing pH. Since Long Island sands tend to have slightly acidic pHs, MonCoat MZTM should not leach significantly to groundwater on sandy Long Island soils when used as labeled.

When used as labeled, the subject product should not cause unreasonable adverse effects to humans or the environment. The Department hereby accepts MonCoat MZTM Potato Seed-Piece Treatment (EPA Reg. No. 71711-8) for registration in New York State. Enclosed for your files are the Certificate of Pesticide Registration and New York State stamped-"ACCEPTED" labeling (identified as 100402 fpl; 1/08/02).

Please note that a proposal by Nichino America, Inc., or any other registrant, to register a product containing flutolanil, whose labeled uses are likely to increase the potential for significant exposure to humans or impact to the environment, would constitute a major change in labeled (MCL) use pattern. Such an application must be accompanied by a new application fee and meet the requirements specified in 6 NYCRR Part 326.17.

Please contact Samuel Jackling, Chief of our Pesticide Product Registration Section, at (518) 402-8768 if you have any questions.
