Notice of Request for Revision to and Extension of Approval of an Information Collection; Importation of Gypsy Moth Host Materials From Canada, 19870 [2021-07679]

Download as PDF 19870 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 71 / Thursday, April 15, 2021 / Notices used in the Florida production area. Another commenter questioned the development of the ‘‘controlled environment’’ definition, since greenhouse production methods represent a very small portion of the tomatoes handled in Florida. Comments also argued the proposed new exemption and definition were not reflective of production techniques used outside of the production area and the change would negatively impact greenhouse tomatoes. Further, one commenter stated shade-house production differs significantly from open-field tomato production, and that the structures in Mexico are permanent and provide a significant degree of control over growing conditions and warrant different treatment from openfield production. Several commenters also expressed that certain proposed changes were inconsistent with the Act and outside the scope of the Order. After reviewing and considering the comments received, the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) has determined there is little support for the proposed changes and the rule to modify the handling requirements for tomatoes grown in Florida should not be finalized. AMS intends to conduct outreach with Florida tomato industry stakeholders and consider whether changes will be proposed in the future. Accordingly, the proposed rule to modify the handling requirements in the Order that published in the Federal Register on June 9, 2020, (85 FR 35222) is hereby withdrawn.
