It should be noted that James Sims is the patent holder on methyl iodide, which he developed as a professor at UC Riverside. He licenses said patent to Arysta LifeScience, the North Carolina-based manufacturer of the fumigant it calls MIDAS.
To our knowledge, Professor Sims has declined to answer questions regarding how much money he earns in licensing this patent.
