US adjusts methyl bromide allowance

The US EPA is to allow more new production and imports of the fumigant, methyl bromide, for critical uses this year than originally proposed. The Agency has reduced the amount to come from existing stocks following a reassessment of inventory levels. In December 2008, the EPA proposed that 4,194.9 tonnes of methyl bromide should be available, with 1,617.9 tonnes coming from new production or imports and 2,577 tonnes from stocks ( Agrow No 558, p 14). The EPA’s final rule on 2009 critical use exemptions allows 2,275.7 tonnes of new production or imports and 1,919.2 tonnes of stocks.
