SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    AMS discovered an error in a maturity date in Sec.  915.332 of the 
codified regulations. A final rule published in the Federal Register on 
June 16, 1994 (59 FR 30869), inserted specific calendar dates into 
Table 1 of Sec.  915.332(a)(2), regulating the maturity for avocados 
grown in South Florida. The D date of the Meya variety was 
inadvertently published as ``1-89'' when it should have been ``1-09'.

Need for Correction

    A maturity date for Meya variety avocados in Marketing Order 915, 
Avocados Grown in South Florida, is incorrect and needs to be changed. 
In Table 1 of Sec.  915.332(a)(2), the date should be ``1-09'', but the 
date appears as ``1-89''. This correction document corrects that 
mistake.
