Bromide residues in potatoes fumigated with methyl bromide
Free methyl bromide and total bromide residues were determined in potatoes fumigated with methyl bromide. In potatoes fumigated at 180 mg×h/l with methyl bromide at 10 or 18°C after import into the United Kingdom, no free methyl bromide was detectable 24 h after fumigation and total bromide did not exceed 32 ppm.
