Gas fumigant

March 6, 2006
Postharvest gas fumigant from Dow AgroSciences was approved by the US EPA for use in food processing facilities, pet food facilities, warehouses and shipping containers. Recognized as a replacement for methyl bromide, it is non-reactive, so it does not form off-odors or flavors and it does not deplete the ozone layer. A Fumiguide program determines a customized dosage to control the targeted pest species and life stages, including eggs and adults, and can be used to run simulated scenarios and calculate exposure times to meet customer needs.
