US methyl bromide cancellation requests

The US EPA has received requests from the registrants of the fumigant, methyl bromide, to cancel the approvals of all soil-applied treatments except for critical use exemptions (CUE) and quarantine or pre-shipment (QPS) uses. The request follows an agreement between the registrants and the EPA to allow certain soil treatments to remain for specified periods. Approvals for use on onions in Georgia, ginger in Hawaii and tomatoes in California are valid until December 31st 2012. The turf registration can remain until December 31st 2013 and those for caneberries and tobacco seedlings until December 31st 2014. The production and import of methyl bromide for uses other than CUE and QPS have been banned since 2005 under the Montreal Protocol ( Agrow passim).
