Agriculture

It’s time for a new approach

Common fumigants have serious negative effects for the agricultural industry globally including increased pest resistance due, high toxicity to humans, ozone depletion, climate change, and pest infestations that result in billions of dollars in lost revenue annually.

A new approach to fumigation is required. Universal Biosecurity has developed Fume8 – a safe and effective way to fumigate using ethyl formate plus nitrogen.

Registered ethyl formate + CO2 uses
