PR#PriorityPesticide(MFG)Commodity (Crop Group)Project Status
12241 B SAFLUFENACIL ( BASF ) CHIA ( 99 = MISC GROUP ) USE REGISTERED

Reduced Risk Status: THIS AI HAS BEEN CLASSIFIED AS RR FOR ONE OR MORE FOOD USES.
IPM Compatibility: PER REQUESTOR: VERY GOOD IPM FIT; AS AN ALTERNATIVE CROP, CHIA BRINGS BIODIVERSITY TO BREAK DISEASE AND INSECT CYCLES NATURALLY; CHIA HAS LOW WATER AND FERTILITY NEEDS COMPARED WITH MOST CROPS, AND IS A POLLINATOR FRIENDLY CROP:05/17; FROM SOR 2017 NOMINATION: GOOD IPM FIT; HAVING A DESSICANT FOR FULL SEASON CHIA FACILITATES ITS USE AS A ROTATIONAL CROP FOR CORN AND SOYBEANS AND MAY BE USED AS A CULTURAL CONTROL IN WEED, INSECT AND DISEASE MANAGEMENT
Reasons for need: REQUESTING USE AS A DESICCANT TO ASSIST WITH CROP HARVEST; CHIA SEEDS ARE MATURE AND ARE READY TO HARVEST LONG BEFORE PLANTS DRY DOWN ENOUGH FOR DIRECT HARVEST; WITHOUT A DESICCANT OVER 50% OF CHIA SEED MAY BE LOST WHILE WAITING FOR PLANTS TO DRY DOWN ENOUGH FOR HARVEST:05/17
Requesting State(s): CA:Mitchell, C; Harris, D ; IA:Danner, M ; IL:Patten, D; Hermann, B; Zobrist, J ; IN:Bates, R; Frey, L ; KS:Woodbury, L ; KY:Kummer, C; Ebe ; NE:Gangwish, R ; NY:Wildman, R ; OR:Rea, D ; SD:Eberhart, W; Eberhart V ; TN:Bryant, M; Head, J ;
PCR Use Pattern: USE THE SHARPEN PRODUCT; MAKE ONE FOLIAR APPLIC OF 2 OZ PRODUCT/A; 5-DAY PHI; WITH AI INCLUDE 20.0 OZ/A OF 32% UAN AND 25.0 OZ/A OF METHYLATED SEED OIL, IN 15 GPA
EPA Default Residue Trials:
IR-4 Residue Trial Plan:
Residue Protocol Use Pattern:
Efficacy/Crop Safety (E/CS) Data Required: MFG HAS CONFIRMED WITH HEARTLAND CHIA CO THAT DATA FROM AT LEAST 6 DESSICATION TRIALS OVER 2 YEARS IN PROMINENT CHIA GROWING LOCATIONS ARE NEEDED TO FURTHER PROVE THAT SHARPEN IS AN EFFECTIVE DESSICANT ON CHIA:04/18
E/CS Research Comments: 2018 EFFICACY TRIALS WERE LOST DUE TO EXTREMELY WET WEATHER; MORE TRIALS ARE PLANNED IN 2019, COORDINATED BY HEARTLAND CHIA VIA THE UNIV. OF KY; BUT THE MFG IS COMFORTABLE WITH THE USE PATTERN AND EFFICACY AS A DESICCANT ON CHIA:03/19
Label Use Pattern Submitted To EPA:
EPA PIF Status: EPA GREEN: 2017
EPA Status: 9E8763 SUB:05/19 PROP:08/19 RULE:09/20
EPA PRIA Date: 9/21/20
MRID: 50790900
Comments: CHIA IS AN IMPORTANT EMERGING CROP, WITH MUCH BETTER REVENUE POTENTIAL PER ACRE THAN CURRENTLY GROWN CROPS IN MANY AREAS, BUT HERBICIDES LABELED FOR USE IN CHIA ARE ESSENTIAL; THIS USE CAN LIKELY BE COVERED WITH EXISTING TOLERANCE ON WHEAT, PER A CHEMSAC DECISION REGARDING USE OF WHEAT DATA TO COVER CHIA:05/17; MFG REQUIRES E/CS DATA BEFORE APPROVAL FOR RESIDUE (AT FUW):09/17; EPA GREEN:09/17; MFG INDICATES A TOLERANCE ON CHIA CAN BE EXTRAPOLATED FROM EXISTING DESSICATION TOLERANCES ON WHEAT/BARLEY GRAIN, SO ONLY NEED E/CS DATA:04/18; MFG CONFIRMED NO MORE PERFORMANCE DATA IS NEEDED FROM IR-4, AND THIS DESICCANT USE ON CHIA CAN BE INCLUDED IN THE PENDING TOLERANCE PETITION; THE USE WILL BE PUT ON THE "SHARPEN POWERED BY KIXOR HERBICIDE" LABEL, WITH THE SAME USE PATTERN LABELED FOR DESICCATION ON WHEAT:03/19; PER MFG, TOLERANCE ESTABLISHED ON CHIA SEED AND STRAW:09/20; PER BASF EMAIL, DESSICATION LABEL FOR CHIA IS COMING OUT:11/20
