EPA has exempted Agrobacterium radiobacter, strains K84 and K1026, from the requirements of EPA’s Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program. A. radiobacter is a naturally occurring soil bacterium present in many soil types and roizospheres worldwide.  During its Pesticides Review Case 4104, Docket Number EPA-HQ-2009-0878,  EPA determined that neither the microorganisms nor the adenine compound they produce are anticipated to produce in humans or any other organism an effect similar to that produced by a naturally occurring estrogen, androgen, or thyroid hormone.
