Industry Events

"Methyl Bromide and Alternatives: Past, Present, and Future" to be held May 11-13.

| February 11, 2010

Manhattan, Kan. — The Department of Grain Science and Industry, Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kan., is hosting the third and final workshop titled, "Methyl Bromide and Alternatives: Past, Present, and Future" on May 11-13, at the International Grains Program and Conference Center.

The state-of-the-art Hal Ross Flour Mill, adjacent to the conference center, will be fumigated with methyl bromide during this workshop. The workshop is limited to 50 participants and the registration cost is $150 per person. This workshop is part of a larger effort by Kansas State University, Purdue University, USDA-ARS Center for Grain and Animal Health Research (CGAHR) and industry stakeholders to improve the structural fumigation process and advance the adoption of methyl bromide alternatives. This workshop is part of a research and technology transfer project supported by a grant from USDA to compare cost-effectiveness of three structural treatments: methyl bromide, sulfuryl fluoride, and heat treatment.

This is the first notice to hold the date. Additional workshop details will be available by visiting www.oznet.ksu.edu/grsc_subi.

Two previous workshops on methyl bromides alternatives were held in May and August of 2009 and information presented at these workshops is available at http://www.ksre.ksu.edu/grsc_subi/Conference/confrence.htm.
