Tolerance Crop Grouping Program III
 
AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
 
ACTION: Proposed rule.
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
 
SUMMARY: EPA is proposing revisions to its pesticide tolerance crop 
grouping regulations, which allow the establishment of tolerances for 
multiple, related crops based on data from a representative set of 
crops. The present revisions would expand existing crop groups for 
stone fruits and tree nuts by establishing new crop subgroups and/or 
adding new commodities. EPA expects these revisions to promote greater 
use of crop groupings for tolerance-setting purposes and, in 
particular, to assist in making available lower risk pesticides for 
minor crops, both domestically and in countries that export food to the 
United States. This is the third in a series of planned crop group 
updates expected to be proposed over the next several years.
