Optimization and Integration of Essential Chemical Control Methods for Postharvest and Quarantine Pests (Methyl Bromide Alternatives)Entry ID: USDA0522
Abstract: The data found in "Optimization and Integration of Essential
Chemical Control Methods for Postharvest and Quarantine Pests
(Methyl Bromide Alternatives)" are used to develop
quarantine/postharvest control strategies using chemicals to
reduce anthropod pests in durable and perishable commodities;
develop new fumigants and/or strategies to reduce methyl bromide
emissions; develop system approaches ... for control using chemicals
combined with non-chemical methodologies which will yield
integrated pest control management programs.
Collection Organization: USDA Agricultural Research Service
Collection Methodology: Develop alternative chemical control,
fumigations for quarantine, stored product insects. Develop
facilities to investigate the feasibility of controlling
fumigant emissions to the atmosphere by recycling and trapping
and destruction. Develop combinations of fumigants with other
technologies to reduce the dosage of fumigant required to
control or eradicate stored product and quarantine insects in
durable and perishable commodities. Develop integrated
management systems which incorporate chemicals along with
non-chemicals control approaches for stored-product pests on
Collection Frequency: Ongoing research.
Update Characteristics: Continuous.
Data Center: USDA Agricultural Research Service
Dissemination Media: Data available in hard copy publications;
additional publications in progress.
Access Restrictions: There are no legal restrictions to access
