The EPA has developed a new electronic Buffer Zone Calculator to assist soil fumigant applicators to determine the buffer zone distances which are now required by soil fumigant product labels. The new Buffer Zone Calculator is specific to each soil fumigant product. The new calculator can also be used to calculate buffer zone reductions through credits and modifications to application variables. Applicators will need to confirm that the buffer zone calculator results are consistent with buffer zone requirements listed on product labels.
