Arkema has been granted registration by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for Paladin, a pre-plant soil fumigant that is effective against nematodes parasites, weeds and soil-borne plant pathogens.


Paladin is a new and effective soil fumigant based on dimethyl disulfide (DMDS) — a substance derived from sulfur, which is naturally present in the environment — for substitution of methyl bromide, which is being gradually banned as part of the Montreal Protocol. Paladin is a restricted use pesticide and is only available for sale and use by Certified Applicators.
