Methyl bromide at:
- 32 grm/m3 at 21 degrees Celsius (or above) for 24 hours or above at NAP as per PQ Order 2003;
The Indian NPPO accepts the following dosage compensation from for methyl bromide fumigation applied at temperatures between 11 and 21 degrees Celsius:
- 40 grm/m3 at 16-20 degrees Celsius for 24 hours at NAP;
- 48 grm/m3 at 11-15 degrees Celsius for 24 hours at NAP.
