New Tolerances

1. PP 9E7606. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0906). Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc., 410 Swing Road, P.O. Box 18300, Greensboro, NC 27419-8300, proposes to establish an import tolerance in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the fungicide isopyrazam (SYN520453), in or on banana at 0.05 parts per million (ppm). An adequate, validated method (GRM006.01B) is available for enforcement purposes for the determination of residues of isopyrazam, analyzed as the isomers SYN534968 and SYN534969, in crop samples. The limit of quantitation (LOQ) has been set at 0.005 mg/kg for each isomer (0.01 mg/kg for SYN520453 in total). Final determination is by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). An analytical method suitable for the determination of residues of the metabolites CSCD459488 and CSCD459489 (syn and anti forms respectively) in crop samples using an external standardization procedure is also available (GRM006.03A). The LOQ has been set at 0.005 mg/kg for both analytes. Final determination is by LC-MS/MS. Contact: Shaunta Hill, (703) 347-8961; hill.shaunta@epa.gov.

2. PP 9E7632. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0861).

Adequate analytical methodology using LC-MS/MS detection is available for enforcement purposes. Contact: Laura Nollen, (703) 305-7390; nollen.laura@epa.gov.

3. PP 9E7642. (EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0890). The Interregional Research Project No. 4 (IR-4), 500 College Road East, Suite 201W, Princeton, NJ 08540, in cooperation with Chemtura Corp., 199 Benson Rd (2-5), Middlebury, CT 06749, proposes to establish tolerances in 40 CFR part 180 for residues of the insecticide bifenazate, (1-methylethyl 2-(4-methoxy[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-yl)hydrazinecarboxylate) and diazinecarboxylic acid, 2-(4-methoxy-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-yl), 1-methylethyl ester (expressed as bifenazate), in or on sugar apple, cherimoya, atemoya, custard apple, ilama, soursop, and biriba at 1.5 ppm; avocado at 7.0 ppm; fruit, small, vine climbing subgroup 13-07F, except fuzzy kiwi fruit at 0.75 ppm; and berry, low growing, subgroup 13-07G at 1.5 ppm. Chemtura Corporation, has developed practical analytical methodology for detecting and measuring residues of bifenazate in or on raw agricultural commodities. As D3598, a significant metabolite, was found to interconvert readily to/from bifenazate, the analytical method was designed to convert all residues of D3598 to the parent compound (bifenazate) for analysis. The method, “Determination of Combined Bifenazate and D3598 Residues in Sugar Apple”, utilizes reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to separate the bifenazate from matrix derived interferences, and oxidative coulometric electrochemical detection for the identification and quantification of this analyte. The lowest level of method validation (LLMV) in this study was 0.05 ppm for each analyte. Based on recoveries of samples fortified at the LLMV, the limit of detection (LOD) and limit of quantitation (LOQ) were calculated as 0.0308 ppm and 0.0923 ppm, respectively, for bifenazate and as 0.0332 ppm and 0.0997 ppm, respectively, for D3598.
