Costs of Methyl Iodide Non-Registration: Economic Analysis
Goodhue, Rachael, Peter Howard, and Richard Howitt
The California Department of Pesticide Regulation has proposed to register methyl iodide, a fumigant that may be a technically feasible alternative to methyl bromide in some uses. To the extent that currently registered alternatives cannot substitute perfectly for methyl bromide, methyl iodide has the potential to offer a better option for growers, so that non-registration could generate costs for California agriculture.
