Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 246 / Wednesday, December 26, 2018 / Notices allow manufacturers to field test pesticides under development. Manufacturers are required to obtain an EUP before testing new pesticides or new uses of pesticides if they conduct experimental field tests on more than 10 acres of land or more than one surface acre of water. Pursuant to 40 CFR 172.11(a), EPA has determined that the following EUP application may be of regional or national significance, and therefore is seeking public comment on the EUP application: Submitter: Valent BioSciences LLC, (73049–EUP–RN). Pesticide Chemical: Aminoethoxyvinylglycine. Summary of Request: Valent BioSciences LLC (Valent) submitted a request for an experimental use permit (EUP) that will involve application of an end-use product (EP) (ReTain OL Plant Growth Regulator Liquid Concentrate) that contains the active ingredient aminoethoxyvinylglycine (AVG). Concurrently, Valent also petitioned EPA to establish temporary tolerances (i.e., 0.065 parts per million (ppm) of AVG in or on apple and 0.065 ppm of AVG in or on pear) for 3 years for harvest management in commercial apple and pear production. The EP is to be applied via spray to apples and pears across a total of 5,500 acres per year for 3 years in the following states: Washington (5,000 acres), Michigan (100 acres), Pennsylvania (100 acres), Connecticut (75 acres), Massachusetts (75 acres), Vermont (75 acres), and Virginia (75 acres). The EP will be applied at a maximum amount per year of 112,000 fluid ounces and at a maximum rate per acre of 20 fluid ounces. Following the review of the application and any comments and data received in response to this solicitation, EPA will decide whether to issue or deny the EUP request, and if issued, the conditions under which it is to be conducted. Any issuance of an EUP will be announced in the Federal Register. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 Authority: 7 U.S.C. 136 et seq. Dated: December 4, 2018.
