1,3-Dichloropropene, the main ingredient of Telone II®1, was introduced as a commercial fumigant in 1955 (Berry et al. 1980). A preparation containing 1,3-dichloropropene and 1,2-dichloropropane was subsequently marketed under the name D-D®1 (Maddy et al. 1982, Parker et al. 1982). According to Parker et al. (1982) and Thompson (1983), there are presently at least seven commercial preparations of fumigant containing 1,3-dichloropropene (Table I).
