Abstract/Contents:Discusses the need for methyl bromide (MeBr) alternatives. Profiles methyl iodide (MeI), which "[provides] similar control of fungi, nematodes and weeds compared to MeBr". Mentions that "MeI does not deplete ozone as rapidly as MeBr" but "both MeBr and MeI are known or suspected carcinogens". Concludes that "although MeI meets some reduced risk criteria by not damaging the ozone layer, methyl iodide is a highly toxic chemical".
