EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AJ28 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Pesticides; Expansion of Crop Grouping Program 
Abstract:

In phases, EPA is revising the current pesticide crop grouping regulations to create new crop groupings, add new subgroups, and expand existing crop groups by adding new commodities. The current crop groupings allow EPA to establish pesticide tolerances for multiple related crops based upon data for a representative set of crops. EPA expects these revisions to promote greater use of crop grouping for tolerance-setting purposes and to facilitate the availability of pesticides for minor crop uses. EPA finalized the fifth phase in November 2020. EPA plans to issue a proposal for the sixth phase in 2021.
