At the time of submission of the application for registration, this active ingredient was not contained in any pesticide products registered with the Agency.

Regulatory conclusions: The application was approved on May 7, 2010 for C5 HoneySweet Plum (EPA Registration Number 11312-8) for resistance to plum pox virus infection. The Agency approved the application considering data on risks associated with the proposed use of the coat protein gene of plum pox virus, and information on social, economic, and environmental benefits to be derived from use. Specifically, the Agency has considered the nature of the plant-incorporated protectant and its pattern of use, application methods and rates, and level and extent of potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency was able to make basic health and safety determinations showing that the coat protein gene of plum pox virus, Start Printed Page 52742when used in accordance with widespread and commonly recognized practice, will not generally cause unreasonable adverse effects on the environment.

Missing data & conditions for submission: C5 HoneySweet Plum, EPA Registration Number 11312-8, was conditionally registered. A conditional registration may be granted under section 3(c)(7)(C) of FIFRA for a new active ingredient where certain data are lacking, on condition that such data are received by the end of the conditional registration period and do not meet or exceed the risk criteria set forth in 40 CFR 154.7; that use of the pesticide during the conditional registration period will not cause unreasonable adverse effects; and that use of the pesticide is in the public interest. The Agency has considered the available data on the risks associated with the proposed use of the coat protein gene of plum pox virus, and information on social, economic, and environmental benefits to be derived from such use. Specifically, the Agency has considered the nature and its pattern of use, application methods and rates, and level and extent of potential exposure. Based on these reviews, the Agency was able to make basic health and safety determinations which show that use of the coat protein gene of plum pox virus during the period of conditional registration will not cause any unreasonable adverse effect on the environment, and that use of the pesticide is, in the public interest.

Consistent with section 3(c)(7)(C) of FIFRA, the Agency has determined that these conditional registrations are in the public interest. Use of the pesticides are of significance to the user community, and appropriate labeling, use directions, and other measures have been taken to ensure that use of the pesticides will not result in unreasonable adverse effects to man and the environment.
