Steve Smith, Comment of the Save Our Crops Coalition, RE: Notice of Receipt of Several Pesticide Petitions Filed for Residues of Pesticide Chemicals in or on Various Commodities; Pesticide Products; Receipt of Applications to Register New Uses, Docket Nos.

The Save Our Crops Coalition (SOCC) is a grassroots coalition of farm interests
organized for the specific purpose of preventing injury to non-target crops from
exposure to 2,4-D and dicamba. This comment requests the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) evaluate dicamba residue tolerances for dicamba tolerant crops and the tolerances proposed by SOCC concurrently, and withhold registration of all new uses of dicamba until EPA has established residue tolerances for effected crops.
