Midas® Soil Fumigant Pulled from U.S. Market

On Tuesday, Arysta LifeScience Corporation announced that it was suspending sales of its soil fumigant Midas®  in the U.S. citing that the decision was based on an internal review of the economic viability of the product in the U.S. marketplace.  Midas® contains the active ingredient iodomethane (or methyl iodide), which is being used as a replacement for the fumigant, methyl bromide, in such crops as strawberries and tomatoes.
