NIFA Invests $1.8M in Methyl Bromide Transition Program

The Methyl Bromide Transition (MBT) Program addresses the immediate needs and the costs of transition that have resulted from the phase-out of the pesticide methyl bromide. This program supports the discovery and implementation of practical pest management alternatives for commodities and uses affected by the methyl bromide phase-out. The MBT program seeks to solve pest problems in key agricultural production and post-harvest management systems, processing facilities, and transport systems for which methyl bromide has been withdrawn or withdrawal is imminent.
