Financial Efficiency of Methyl Bromide Alternatives for Georgia's Bell Pepper Industries

Georgia vegetable farmers are pressed for time to make the transition to new fumigation methods as use of methyl bromide (MeBr) will be completely banned soon. This study focuses on alternative fumigation methods for Georgia's bell pepper production with production efficiency matching MeBr. Analyses of enterprise cost and return estimates indicate the comparable financial feasibility of certain technically efficient fumigant systems vis-à-vis the conventional production plan involving MeBr.
