Description DBCP (dibromochloropropane) has been used as a soil fumigant for nematode control for decades by the Hawaii pineapple industry. Recent detection (parts-per-trillion range) of the fumigant in potable well water has spurred a study of the behavior of DBCP in its Hawaiian environment. A volatile trapping apparatus was developed which proved to be highly efficient in capturing volatilized DBCP. Rates of DBCP volatilization from water were established for variations in air flow rate, temperature,...
