The 801 dosage schedule in the amended instructions parallels the 500 schedule in the present instructions, The amended instructions will also bo consistent with the latest experimental data and with the 70o schedule for ethylene dibromide fumigation in Bhwaii of certain fruits and vegetables prescrited in 7 CFR 301.13-4b (B. E. P. Q. 592, effeotive February 18, 1953; 18 F.R. 947). AocordinZly, it is found for good cause that notice and public procedure under the Administrative Procedure Act are unnecessary and contrary to the public interest, and good cause is found for making the effective date hereof leas than 30 days after its publication in the Federal Register.
