    Beating The Ban: UF Researchers Seek Alternatives To methyl Bromide. Ap GAINESVILLE—Methyl bromide, a soil fumigant used to control soilborne pests, is the single most important pest management tool used to produce high-value crops in Florida today, but it’s blamed for contributing to the depletion of the earth’s protective ozone layer. Methyl bromide use has the potential to cause both environmental and public health problems. There are significant MeBr emissions from several anthropogenic sources. These include agricultural soil fumigation, which is believed to contribute from 15 to 35 per cent of global sources (Watson etal., ).

      Economic Effects of Panning Methyl Bromide for Soil Fumigation: Books - at: Paperback. The search for alternative fumigants has been ongoing since the Parties of the Montreal Protocol classified methyl bromide as a Class I controlled substance with an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of and destined it for phase-out. This paper focuses on the hazards from fumigants proposed as alternatives for pre-plant soil fumigation in tomato production.

      At that point, methyl bromide was no longer the fumigant presenting the greatest threat to student health. Growers near Rio Mesa had turned to .   Methyl bromide had been used to fumigate to residential and commercial buildings to kill termites, spiders, mites, rodents and snakes, but this type of use was stopped in the US when the ban .

Methyl bromide (bromomethane, CH 3 Br) used to be the most powerful and popular soil fumigant. In the past, most US agricultural producers utilized methyl bromide (MBr) as the primary fumigant due to its ease of application and high efficacy.

Methyl bromide intoxication in four field-workers during removal of soil fumigation sheets. In agriculture, chloropicrin is injected into soil prior to planting a crop in order to fumigate soil.

Chloropicrin affects a broad spectrum of fungi, microbes, insects. It is commonly used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination / co-formulation with methyl bromide and 1,3-Dichloropropene. Purpose. Methyl bromide is a genotoxic soil fumigant with high acute toxicity, but unknown human carcinogenicity.

Although many countries have reduced methyl bromide use because of its ozone depleting properties, some uses remain in the United States and other countries, warranting further investigation of human health effects.

chemical currently under regulatory scrutiny is methyl bromide (MBr), a commonly used soil and commodity fumigant.

The growing interest in analyzing the economic impact of removing MBr in agriculture is reflected in recent papers (e.g., Deepak et al., ; Lynch, ; and Sunding et al., and ). This study. Methyl bromide, an agricultural fumigant.

Their primary competition in these markets is the Mexican states of Baja California, Sinaloa, and Sonora.

Methyl bromide also depletes the ozone layer. Therefore, along with other countries, the United States has phased out production and consumption of methyl bromide with important exceptions for critical uses as well as quarantine and preshipment.
