What is In-Transit Fumigation

In-Transit Fumigation was born out of the need to protect grain cargoes being shipped over long distances gro insect damage leading to losses. Over time With increasing demands throughout the world for improved standards of foods afety the requirement to deliver food free of infestation has also increased. However the extent of the demands have also increased, and now the requirement is not onl yfor freedom from infestation, but also for zero or very low residues, no health risks,and no increase in costs. Further Bio Security also became a very big concern as no country wanted any pests / insects not native to their shores, as they could severely damage their flaura, fauna and crops. For example Khapra Beetle - It’s discovery in California in 1953 led to a massive control and eradication effort which extended until 1966 and cost the government $15 million (Kerr 1981), which in today's value would be about $ 150 million
