http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=APHIS-2015-0007

Summary

We are advising the public that we have determined that it is necessary to immediately add to the Plant Protection and Quarantine Treatment Manual a new treatment schedule for methyl bromide fumigation of figs for external pests, including Chilean false red mite.  We have prepared a treatment evaluation document that describes the new treatment schedule and explains why we have determined that it is effective at neutralizing these pests.  We are making the treatment evaluation document available to the public for review and comment. Comments will be due April 28.
