of other cotton insecticides in that use of Cry1Ac protein expressed in cotton results in less human and environmental risk. In addition, EPA finds that the use of this product, subject to the specific terms and conditions set forth below, would not pose risks to human health or to non-target species. EPA also concludes that the use of Cry1Ac expressed in cotton raises concerns with respect to: 1) the risk of gene flow to feral cotton species; and 2) insect resistance management. As discussed below, the registration for Cry1Ac protein expressed in cotton is subject to specific terms and conditions that effectively restrict the use of the product in ways that EPA determines will adequately mitigate these concerns. Therefore, EPA determines that the allowed use will not significantly increase the risk of unreasonable adverse effects on the environment. Finally, EPA has identified the need for certain confirmatory data on potential accumulation of Cry1Ac protein in soil and field impacts of Cry1Ac protein on non-target species.
