 REGISTRATIONS

 Dow  AgroSciences has submitted residue studies to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to
 sujjport the establishment of quinoxyfen tolerances on several minor crops for Quintee* (62719-375} registrations.
 With this letter, we arc requesting exclusive use of residue data for minor crops submitted after the enactment of the
 Food Quality Protection Act of August 3, (996. Under FQPA, Title II - Minor Use Cmii:Prfltecljen..... Subtitle A
 - Minor Use Crop Protection, Sec, 210 (b) Exclusive Use of Minor Use Pesticides (2) (ii) stating " The period of
 exclusive data use provided under clause (i) shall be extended I additional year for each 3 minor uses registered after
 the time of enactment of this clause and within 7 years of the commencement of the exclusive use period, up to a total
 of 3 additional years far all minor uses registered by the administrator....". As required by this section of F1FRA, we
 are also  notifying the Administrator that the residue data cited in this letter pertains solely to the minor use tolerances
 thai have been requested.

 In addition, with this letter, we are requesting 10 years of exclusive use of residue data submitted after the enactment
 of the Food' Quality Protection Act of August 3, 1996, as allowed under FIFRA 3(c) (i)(F){vi}. As required by this
 section of FIFRA. we are also notifying the Administrator that the residue data cited in this letter pertain solely to the
 minor use tolerances that have been requested.

 According to FIFRA 3(c)(l}(F)(vi):  " With respect to data submitted after the date of enactment of this clause by an
 applicant or registrant to support an amendment adding a new use to an existing registration that does not retain any
 period of exclusive  use, if such daia relates solely to a minor use of a pesticide, suck data shall not. without the
 written 'permission of the original data submitter, be considered by the Administrator to support an application for a
 minor K.W by another person during the period of 10 years following the date of submission of sack data,"

 Therefore. Dow AgroSciences is requesting the additional protection for the 10 years of exclusive use protection for
  minor use studies which were developed solely to support an amendment to add new uses to the following existing
  quinoxyfen registration:
