some serendipitous things cause me to respond. first, i don't recognize
the node of the cc: address that is involved in this discussion even tho
it's at my university. second, a friend here videotaped the proceedings
of the '94 ntl. coalition against the misuse of pesticides (ncamp) conference,
and one of the workshops, on inerts, involved rodeo in the context of
contaminants. as i rememnber, the msds for rodeo listed dichloroethene or
some such 2 carbon aliphatic organochlorine) at 0.45% but the label did
not, despite epa's requirement that list A inerts be listed on the label
(the organochlorine was on that list). monsanto explained to the nw
coaltn for alternatives to pesticides (ncap, which was leading the workshop)
that it wasn't on the label because it's a contaminant (presumably
of monochlorbenzene, which is on the label). i have a real problem visualizing
how an aromatic organochlorine could ever produce that much of an
aliphatic one in its production process. can you clarify?

but it does recommend several to use it with, including one that has
nonylphenols (potent hormone disrupter), again from my memory of watching
the tape of the workshop (no, rodeo was not the only subject discussed!).
