                        PUBLIC REPORT

SUBJECT:

Proposed registration affecting the above listed products.

DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED ACTION:

The Director of Pesticide Regulation proposes to register the products listed above pursuant to Chapter 2 of Division 7 (beginning with Section 12751 of the Food and Agriculture Code) after January 4, 2005. Comments concerning this proposed action may be directed to the Department of Pesticide Regulation's Pesticide Registration Branch until that date.

As a result of scientific evaluation, it has been determined that no direct or indirect significant adverse environmental impact is anticipated from the registration of the above listed products; therefore, no public report on the individual products will be filed.


ALTERNATIVES:

An effective integrated pest management strategy requires the flexibility of a large number of comparable, but not exactly equivalent, pesticides.  A detailed alternatives analysis involving all anticipated crop and pest uses, under many environmental conditions and cultural practices, is beyond the scope of the normal evaluation process when no significant adverse environmental impact which cannot be mitigated is anticipated.  Such analyses are more appropriate where more specific conditions apply, such as at the user level or, in the case of restricted materials, at the level of the county agricultural commissioner.  For a specified situation there may be few or no alternatives.

In the present case, in the absence of an identified significant potential adverse impact, the benefit arising from pest management flexibility is determined to justify this registration.
