USDA New Implementation on Peruvian Asparagus

01/01/2011 10:47 am

A new change to the manual T100 Asparagus treated with 4.5 lbs at 40 to 49 degrees will be section 18.
"When commodities intended for food or feed are fumigated with methyl bromide under the FIFRA Section 18 Quarantine Exemption, one additional EPA requirement must be met: PPQ must monitor aeration by sampling the gas concentration to determine when a commodity may be released."
Cordially,
