Golden Nematode; Removal of Regulated Areas
AGENCY: Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.
ACTION: Affirmation of interim rule as final rule.
SUMMARY: We are adopting as a final rule, without change, an interim rule that amended the golden nematode regulations by removing the townships of Elba and Byron in Genesee County, NY, from the list of generally infested areas. Surveys have shown that the fields in these two townships are free of golden nematode, and we determined that regulation of these areas was no longer necessary. As a result of that action, all the areas in Genesee County, NY, that were listed as generally infested were removed from the list of areas regulated for golden nematode.
DATES: Effective on April 13, 2012, we are adopting as a final rule the interim rule published at 76 FR 60357-60358 on September 29, 2011.
