Reminder to All Agriculture Fumigant Users

In addition to the fumigant label changes that we were required to follow last growing season the new “Phase Two” changes will be in effect for the upcoming year.

 These changes include:
  1. Buffer Zones and Posting
  2. Emergency preparedness and response measures
  3. Training required for at least one certified applicator supervising the application (at this time the training must be completed online until further notice)

Changes to label last year are still in effect:
  1. Fumigant Management Plans (FMP’s)
  2. Good Ag Practice Requirements (GAP’s) which includes requirement for yearly respirator fit testing

Visit the EPA website-
