Public workshop on 1,3-dichloropropene (1,3-D) Oct. 17, 2019, Sacramento
The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) is inviting you to attend a workshop on October 17, 2019 to explore additional measures to protect bystanders and residents from acute (short-term) inhalation exposures to 1,3-dichloropropene (1,3-D). 1,3-D is a pre-plant fumigant used to control insects, nematodes, and other organisms in the soil that threaten a variety of crops including nut trees, berries, sweet potatoes, and grapes. It is commonly injected into the soil or applied through drip irrigation.
This DPR workshop will discuss the acute 1,3-D regulatory target concentration, possible 1,3-D mitigation measures, and timing for implementation. The workshop will also provide time to answer questions and hear suggestions for alternative approaches that would be equally effective in reducing acute exposure to 1,3D.

1,3-D is a toxic air contaminant and a "restricted material" that requires a permit from the county agricultural commissioner prior to its application. In addition, applications of 1,3-D must be recommended by a licensed pest control advisor and supervised by a licensed certified applicator.
