New Website on Soil Fumigants

As part of the EPA’s effort to build a more user-friendly website, we have compiled all of our information on soil fumigants into a microsite so that visitors can find the information they need more quickly and easily. The Soil Fumigant Toolbox contains material on

  • training,
  • fumigant management plans,
  • buffer zones and
  • other safety measures for the protection of agricultural workers and bystanders.

You will find background information on soil fumigants and links to fact sheets and the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture Research Foundation’s Soil Fumigation Manual, a national pesticide applicator study guide.

This toolbox will be useful to fumigant handlers and certified applicators, state and tribal agencies, and communities that may be affected by the fumigation of soil. It can be accessed at http://www2.epa.gov/soil-fumigants.
