This notice announces EPA's order for the cancellation, voluntarily requested by the registrant and accepted by the Agency, of a product containing maneb, pursuant to section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended. This cancellation order follows a March 4, 2010, Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Request from the registrant listed in Table 2 in Unit II. of this document, to voluntarily cancel this product registration.
