EPA is requiring important 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.
In May 2009, EPA issued Amended Reregistration Eligibility Decisions (REDs) for the soil fumigant pesticides, including final new safety measures for soil fumigant pesticides to increase protections for agricultural workers and bystanders. Implemented over the next two years, these measures will work together to establish a baseline for safe use of the soil fumigants throughout the United States, reducing fumigant exposures and significantly improving safety.
