Excerpt: Simple alkyl halides are widely employed throughout California and elsewhere as soil fumigants to combat the destructive action of plant parasitic nematodes and fungi. Typical of this class of compounds are: methyl bromide, chloropicrin, ethylene dibromide, i,2-dibromo-3-chloropropane, and cis- and trans-l,3-dichloropropene.I n addition to their broad biocidal capacities, these compounds are volatile and possess good diffusion characteristics. Analyses, in our laboratory, of the edible portion of crops grown in orchards and fields throughout the state that had been fumigated with these substances showed no organic halide to be present. On the other hand, an increase in inorganic bromide or chloride compared to that of untreated check crops could be detected. These results corroborated earlier industrial findings.
