If the registrant's name appears on the label and the registrant is not the manufacturer, or if the name of the person for whom the pesticide was manufactured appears on the label, it must be qualified by appropriate wording such as "Packed for...," "Distributed by...," or "Sold by...," to show that the name is not that of the manufacturer.

2. If (i) the pesticide is sold to a producer for dilution or mixing with carriers to prepare pesticides for sale to the public, provided that the label bears an ingredient statement giving the name and percentage of each of the active ingredients; (ii) the pesticide is a well-known substance or mixture of substances; and (iii) there is readily available general knowledge of the composition, methods of use, and effectiveness of the product for pesticide purposes.
