2012 Field Fumigant Labels

Back to Fumigant Regulatory Issues

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) is requiring new safety measures for soil fumigant pesticides to increase protections for agricultural workers and bystanders - people who live, work, or otherwise spend time near fields that are fumigated. Most of these measures are being implemented as revisions to pesticide product labels containing the following active ingredients:

  • chloropicrin
  • dazomet
  • metam sodium/potassium (including methyl isothiocyanate or MITC)
  • methyl bromide

(Labels for products containing 1,3-dichlorpropene as the sole active ingredient were not revised.)

U.S. EPA implemented the label revisions in two phases. The Phase 1 labels went into effect in 2010. Phase 2 labels go into effect December 1, 2012. After that date, registrants can only sell and distribute products bearing new labels.

To assist county agricultural commissioners in making plans for permit issuance and enforcement of the new labels, DPR is providing electronic copies of Phase 1 soil fumigant labels accepted for use in 2010 and each current accepted Phase 2 soil fumigant label. Any changes made to the labels in 2011 are not included. Any such changes are likely to be minor. Users and enforcement staff are reminded that the label on the product at the time of use is the one that must be followed. New registered product labels or revisions to current labels will not be added to this list.
