EU accelerates methyl bromide phase-out

A schedule to speed up the EU phase-out of the fumigant, methyl bromide, comes into force this month. The move will ban all uses by March 18th 2010. The timetable is part of a new regulation (1005/2009) on substances that deplete the ozone layer, which updates earlier legislation dating from 2000. The legislation was approved by the European Parliament and EU Ministers earlier this year ( Agrow No 565, p 15).
