The Third Circuit Court of Appeals upholds a district court decision, 11 ELR 20849 allowing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to issue a permit for experimental use of a pesticide for soybeans. It adopts the district court's conclusion that, under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, EPA properly considered another submitter's data in issuing the permit.
