The fact sheet summarizes the information in the RED for methiocarb. Methiocarb was first registered as a pesticide in the U.S. in 1972. EPA issued a Registration Standard for methiocarb in March 1987 (NTIS No. PB87-190898), requiring additional product chemistry, residue chemistry, ecological effects, environmental fate, toxicology, and occupational and residential exposure data. The methiocarb producers deleted all food uses from their product labels between 1989-92, so residue chemistry studies are no longer required. Currently, 22 pesticide products are registered which contain the active ingredient methiocarb.
