Soil Fumigants

Tarps Approved for Use with Dimethyl Disulfide (DMDS) Products

This Web page lists acceptable tarps for use with dimethyl disulfide (DMDS) products.    All DMDS product labels currently list the URL http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/dmds-tarps/. The Web page for that URL will be directed to this new page until labels are updated to reflect this change.

Soil fumigant products containing the active ingredient DMDS require use of the specific tarps listed below. No buffer credits are provided for the use of these tarps because buffer zones on DMDS labels are based on the use of these required tarps. In Florida, there is a subset listed below of specific tarps which must be used for all DMDS applications.

For all States except Florida, only the tarps listed below can be used with products which contain the active ingredient DMDS, based on EPA’s review of testing for permeability. No other tarps are approved for use with products containing DMDS for these applications.

DISCLAIMER: This list of tarp products is provided solely for determining which tarps can be used in accordance with DMDS product labels. The identification of these commercial products or services, their source, or their use is not to be construed as either an actual or implied endorsement of any such product or service.
