General & Use:

Mixtures of Methyl Bromide and Chloropicrin containing more than 2% of Chloropicrin, are used for soil fumigation purposes only, utilizing mechanized injection application methods. Chloropicrin is added as an active ingredient that effectively controls soil-borne fungi and bacteria. Since Methyl Bromide use is restricted, and the available quantities for soil fumigation are becoming limited, mixtures rich in Chloropicrin allow farmers to use less Methyl Bromide per area unit, without losing efficiacy of fumigation.

Major Features of Methyl Bromide and Chloropicrin mixtures are:
* Highly effective against a wide range of soil-borne pests.
* Penetration into undecomposed material.
* Good efficacy in a wide range of temperatures.
* Increased growth affects response.


BROMOPIC ®, containing 70% MBr and 30% Chloropicrin by weight, is a formulation of choice for soil fumigation.
