Approved Section 18 labels for Firewall 50 WP, Fireline 17 WP and Mycoshield Have Arrived

Below are the approved Section 18 labels for Firewall 50 WP, Fireline 17 WP and Mycoshield. Also linked is the approval letter signed by Commissioner Putnam.
With these labels now official per EPA, the emergency crisis declaration is now ended and all applications should follow the requirements of these approved labels. Applicators should have possession of these labels and the approval letter signed by Commissioner Putnam when applications are being made. 
While these Section 18 labels are set to expire December 31, 2016 (end of this year), the CRDF and FFVA are working diligently to provide FDACS and EPA with the proper documentation to extend these labels beyond the December 31 cutoff date. At this time we anticipate that an extension will be granted when needed.
