County Agricultural Commissioners  



The Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) was asked by the Coast Agricultural Commissioners and Sealers Association to develop a model Methyl Bromide Field Fumigation Permit Conditions Information Package for use by county agricultural commissioners. DPR reviewed several packages created by different counties and recommends the attached Methyl Bromide Field Fumigation Package for educating growers and users about the new Methyl Bromide requirements.

Please use these documents as a guide for developing your own package to be adopted and incorporated in your Methyl Bromide Field Fumigation Permit issuance process. This package contains the following documents:

  • Letter to Grower, PDF
  • Methyl Bromide Field Fumigation Information, PDF
  • Methyl Bromide Field Fumigation Permit Conditions, PDF
  • Worksite Plan, PDF
  • Tarp Management Plan, PDF
  • Application Notification, PDF
  • Notification Log, PDF
  • Permission for the Methyl Bromide Buffer to Extend onto Adjoining Property, PDF
  • Vacating Agreement

Attachments 1-9

DPR would like to thank all the counties for their assistance, especially the Santa Cruz Agricultural Commissioner's staff who assisted in developing this Methyl Bromide Package. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Mostafa Chrichi, Senior Pesticide Use Specialist at (916) 445-3884, or via email at
