Mint Industry Research Council
The EPA has finally published our Section 18 request for Tough (pyridate) in the Federal Register this morning. The EPA is now accepting public comment regarding our proposed use of pyridate in mint. Please follow the web link below to provide comment to the EPA. This public comment period is only open for 15 days because this is a Section 18 emergency exemption request. The period closes July 1st. The EPA needs your comments so that they can hear and better understand our urgent need.
Please forward this email and web link to as many mint growers as possible so that our voice and need for pyridate is heard. We are inching closer to a decision with this. I’ve been told that product has been mobilized and is being repacked for immediate distribution if we get an approval. The indemnity agreements will be quickly circulated upon approval as well.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for taking a few minutes to provide public comment.
