    Description

    The US Environmental Protection Agency is requiring important new safety measures for soil fumigant pesticides to increase protections for agricultural workers and bystanders, that is, people who live, work, or otherwise spend time near fields that are fumigated. These measures are included in Amended Reregistration Eligibility Decisions for the soil fumigants chloropicrin, dazomet, metam sodium/potassium (including methyl isothiocyanate or MITC), methyl bromide.
