Among requirements for the reregistration of strychnine, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires efficacy data from strychnine paste-alfalfa baits prepared with strychnine alkaloid paste (NV 830009). The EPA reviewed the data originally submitted by the state of Nevada for registering this strychnine alkaloid paste label and determined that more field efficacy data were needed to maintain the current registration. Therefore, additional efficacy data for strychnine paste-alfalfa baits on Townsend's pocket gopher (Thomomys townsendi) was requested from the state of Nevada.
