*APHIS has granted nonregulated status to this herbicide resistant plant and trait combination.  However, APHIS does not have regulatory oversight for herbicides; that authority is under the purview of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  APHIS believes that at this time, no herbicide products have completed EPA’s pesticide registration process for use on this particular herbicide plant/trait combination.  Use of any herbicide must be in accordance with its label.  Applications of the herbicide on the plant before EPA has granted a registration would constitute a violation of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) administered by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Pesticide Programs.  Therefore, growers should carefully ensure that any pesticide use is consistent with its approved labeling.  APHIS is in communication with EPA and will update this listing with any updates relative to the herbicide’s registration status.

**Products with plant incorporated protectants are regulated by EPA. This regulatory status refers only to proposed 7 CFR part 340.
