EPA is requesting public comment on a request from azinphos-methyl (AZM) registrants to amend their registrations. These amendments would change the rate reductions for some remaining uses of AZM, and would extend the use of aerially applied AZM on blueberry crops in Michigan until the end of the AZM phase out in 2012. The registrants have not requested to extend use of AZM beyond the September 30, 2012, cancellation date for the remaining uses of AZM. The public comment period will close on September 21, 2009.

AZM is an organophosphate insecticide that was first registered in the United States in 1959. On November 16, 2006, EPA issued a determination that, due to farm worker and ecological risks, all remaining uses of AZM will be phased out by September 30, 2012.
