A RESEARCH CONFERENCE on methyl bromide alternatives and emissions reduction is set for Nov. 6-9 at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Florida, U.S.
The use of methyl bromide, a widely used fumigant for agricultural production, trade, storage and structures, is scheduled to be phased out by the year 2005 under the Clean Air Act and Montreal Protocol, because of its harmful effects on the world's ozone layer.
The 2000 annual conference is being sponsored by Methyl Bromide Alternatives Outreach.
