Pesticide News Story: EPA Requests Comment on Chemigation Labeling Paper

For Release: December 9, 2008

EPA has published on its Web site a chemigation labeling discussion paper to allow any interested parties to give the Agency preliminary, informal comments on the best approaches to take in developing useful guidance on chemigation labeling before the Agency begins drafting a specific proposal that may be issued for public notice and comment. The Agency is considering developing new guidance for the labeling of pesticide products applied through irrigation systems, or “chemigation.” Such guidance would supersede the existing Agency guidance on this subject contained in Pesticide Registration Notice 87-1 (PRN 87-1) published March 11, 1987. State pesticide regulatory officials representing the State FIFRA Issues Research and Evaluation Group (SFIREG) requested EPA to consider this step in an issue paper submitted to the Agency in 2007.

Comments on this paper should be submitted by February 6, 2009, to: opp_labeling_consistency@epa.gov. Do not submit information considered to be Confidential Business Information or otherwise protected from disclosure. Any comments submitted may be made available to the public. To assist the Agency in responding to comments, please include your name, organizational affiliation, and a telephone number.
