This document extends the public comment period established in the Federal Register of July 13, 2005 (70 FR 40333) (FRL–7722–1). In that document, EPA made available the human health risk assessment for metam sodium and metam potassium. They are nonselective pre-plant soil fumigants with fungicidal, herbicidal, insecticidal, and nematicidal properties. Metam sodium is one of the most widely used agricultural pesticides in the U.S. and is presently registered on a wide variety of crop groups including: root and tuber vegetables; bulb vegetables; leafy vegetables; Brassica (cole) leafy vegetables; legume vegetables; fruiting vegetables; cucurbit vegetables; citrus fruits; pome fruits; stone fruits; berries; tree nuts; cereal grains; nongrass livestock feeds; and herbs and spices. Metam sodium may be applied to plant beds as a soil drench treatment. It may also be applied to field or row crops during pre-plant and postharvest stages via chemigation, soil broadcast treatment, soil band treatment, soilincorporated treatment, and soilinjection treatment. An estimated 51 million pounds of metam sodium is applied annually. Lesser amounts of metam potassium are used in the U.S.; unless further qualified or specified, use of the term ‘‘metam sodium’’ should be assumed to also include ‘‘metam potassium.’’ EPA is hereby extending the comment period, which was set to end on September 12, 2005, to October 12, 2005. The Agency received a request from the Society of American Florists and is therefore, granting the extension based on the volume and complexity of the documents to be reviewed.
