(a) The name and address of the registrant and the name and address of the person whose name will appear on the label, if other than the registrant; and
(b) the name of the pesticide; and
(c) a complete copy of the labeling except for annual renewals where the registrant has certified that the product label on file with the department is unchanged; and

4. the net contents; and

6. the total percentage of constituents ineffective as a spray adjuvant; and
7. directions for use.
(4) Pesticides which have identical ingredient statements, identical label claims, are manufactured by the same company, and the labels of which bear a designation identifying the products as the same pesticide may be registered as a single pesticide provided the additional product names and labels are supplied and specified as one (1) pesticide.
(5) The director may register a pesticide if he determines that, when considered in connection with any restrictions imposed under section 22-3419, Idaho Code:
(a) Its composition is such as to warrant the proposed claims for it; and
(b) its labeling and other material required to be submitted comply with requirements of federal law and Idaho law; and
(c) it will not cause an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment; and
(d) in the case of an application for registration for a special local need:
1. A special local need exists, and
2. authority to issue the registration in question has been obtained from the administrator of EPA, pursuant to Section 24(c), Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, Rodenticide Act.
(6) The registrant shall pay an annual registration fee as prescribed by rule.
(7) If the application for renewal is not filed with the department prior to January 1 of each year a late penalty fee of five dollars ($5.00) per product shall be assessed and added to the original fee and shall be paid prior to the issuing of the renewal registration. No penalty fee shall be assessed if the applicant furnishes an affidavit stating that he did not distribute such unregistered pesticide subsequent to the expiration of registration of that pesticide.
(8) The director, whenever he deems it necessary in the administration of this act, may require the submission of the complete formula of any pesticide.
(9) A registration shall expire on December 31 following issuance unless the registration has been suspended or revoked as provided for in paragraph (10) of this section.
(10) Refusal to register, suspension:
(a) If it does not appear to the director that the composition of the pesticide is such as to warrant the proposed claims for it, or if the pesticide and its labeling and other material required to be submitted do not comply with the provisions of this act or rules adopted thereunder, he shall notify the applicant of the manner in which the pesticide, labeling or other material required to be submitted fails to comply with the provisions of this act so as to afford the applicant an opportunity to make the necessary corrections. If, upon receipt of such notice, the applicant does not make the required changes, the director may refuse to register the pesticide. The applicant may request a hearing as provided for in the provisions of chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code.
(b) When the director determines that a pesticide or its labeling does not comply with the provisions of this act or the rules adopted thereunder, or when necessary to prevent unreasonable adverse effects on the environment, he may suspend, revoke, or modify the registration of such pesticide in accordance with the provisions of chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code.
