This report contains the Phase I Initial Scientific Review of carbofuran. Carbofuran was identified as a registered substitute chemical for certain problematic uses of chlordane, heptachlor and aldrin which have been cancelled by EPA. The report covers all uses of carbofuran and is intended to be adaptable to future needs. Should carbofuran be identified as a substitute for a problem pesticide other than those mentioned above, the review can be updated and made readily available for use. The data searches ended in June, 1975. The report summarizes rather than interprets scientific data reviewed during the course of the studies. Data from different sources is not correlated, nor are opinions presented on contradictory findings.
