US sulfuryl fluoride action open to question

The US EPA is seeking further input on its proposal to withdraw tolerances for Dow AgroSciences’ fumigant, sulfuryl fluoride, because of concerns over aggregate health risks from fluoride to certain sub-populations. Last January, the Agency called for a quick end to tolerances for applications with limited use and a three-year phase-out for some critical uses ( Agrow No 608, p 11).
