Our Section 18 request to EPA for the use of Avipel as a hopper box seed treatment for bird management in field corn was submitted by the Delaware Department a little over one month ago. Since the review period for Section 18s is a minimum of 50 days, we do not expect to hear back from EPA before mid-March. I want to thank all who responded to our survey – we received a fairly good response rate as well as very good information from all who were able to respond. We will let you know as soon as we hear from EPA about our Delaware submission.
