DPR Releases Updated Chloropicrin Mitigation Measures

Today, the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) released the final version of the updated mitigation measures for chloropicrin. DPR’s new control measures include changes to buffer zones, buffer zone credits, approved tarps, and emergency response and preparedness. Western Growers will continue to work with other industry partners to ensure the safe and continued use of this important crop protection tool.

It is important to note that chloropicrin has been safely used for over 50 years and plays a significant role in growing healthy and nutritious California crops.
