Description: This article gives a brief history of the importance of methyl bromide in the production of forest tree seedlings in the southern United States and the timeline for the Montreal Protocol and Clean Air Act to phase out ozone depleting compounds. In addition, the process, steps used, and current status under the Critical Use Exemption and Quarantine Pre-shipment articles within the treaty are discussed. A summary of the re-registration decisions proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency for the re-registration of all soil fumigants under the Food Quality Protection Act for the 2012 production season is outlined as well as the current status of MBr alternatives.
