AGRO - Petition
for Proposed Pesticide Tolerance. EPA proposes to establish
tolerances for residues of the insecticide tau-fluvalinate
in or on the raw agriculture commodities (RAC) apples at 0.5
ppm; oriental pears at 0.5 ppm; and kiw at 0.1 ppm; , to increase
the tolerance for the insecticide tau-fluvalinate in or on
the RAC fat of cattle at 0.1 ppm; and to change the chemical
nomenclature in the tolerance.
