The purpose of this report is to assist the EPA Administrator to assess the safety in use of the PAX product and of related arsenicals. As a result of the study, there was no unanimity in the attitudes toward the safety of PAX, but the Committee was unanimous in urging further research. The pesticide in question is the PAX Company Three-Year Crabgrass Control product containing 25.11% arsenic trioxide, 8.25% lead arsenate and 4% nitrogen as ammonium sulfate.
