About 13 tonnes of MB is used for0 QPS
Libya imports MB from France and Belgium, in a formulation containing 98% MB and 2% Chloropicrin. The horticulture is the only sector where methyl bromide is used in Libya. Horticulture production is mainly concentrated around the larger cities of Tripoli, Benghazi, Misurata, Zuwara and Sebha. The approximate total area of production under protected horticulture is about 4000 ha. The main crops are tomatoes, melons (cantaloupes), pepper, cucumbers, eggplants and other vegetables such as onions, pumpkins, garlic, spinach and lettuces. MB is generally applied only in protected crops (under glasshouses, fiberglass and plastic greenhouses) to the total soil surface at a dosage of 60 g/m 2. There is a very limited use in open fields for fruits and ornamental nurseries.
