Also, Syngenta Crop Protection Corp., Greensboro, NC has transferred the membership formerly held by Zeneca, Inc., Wilmington, DE to Chemical Products Technologies, L.L.C., Cartersville, GA.
No other changes have been made in either the membership or planned activity of the group research project. Membership in this group research project remains open, and the Spray Drift Task Force intends to file additional written notification disclosing all changes in membership.
