For decades, growers of high value crops have relied heavily upon metam sodium and metam potassium products to control weeds, disease and nematodes. Soil fumigation is one of the most costly inputs for crop production, but without it, many crops such as potatoes, onions and carrots would fail. In order to comply with EPA registration eligibility standards, numerous studies and label changes are underway. Label changes and required activities designed to address stewardship of the product are contained with the Phase I and II label requirements. Phase II changes took place in December of 2012, and will be discussed in this presentation.
