METHYL BROMIDE ALLOCATION
RULE COMPLIANCE MEETINGS HELD AROUND THE STATE
Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association's
Environmental & Pest Management Division, in cooperation
with the registrants and distributors of methyl bromide and
county extension personnel, held the first of six planned regional
meetings for methyl bromide users to update them on compliance
with Clean Air Act Regulations governing the purchase and use
of methyl bromide during calendar year 2005.
The first three meetings held in Plant City, Palmetto, and Immokalee
were attended by more than 150 growers and representatives of
the industries dependent on the use of methyl bromide. Additional
meetings are scheduled for Quincy, Boynton Beach and Homestead
later this month.
