SECTION 11.TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Acute oral toxicity:             LD50 for rats about 650mg/kg, mice >1600mg/kg. 

Acute dermal toxicity:       LD50 for rabbits >200mg/kg, rats >1600mg/kg

Acute inhalation toxicity:   LC50 (rat, 6hr) for rats >65mg/l air. 

Toxicity:                              WHO (a.i.) III, EPA (formulation) III

 

SECTION 12.ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Birds: LD50 for bobwhite quail 788mg/kg. LC50 (8d) for mallard ducks 7000, Japanese quail 1800mg/kg.

Fish:  LC50 (96h) for rainbow trout 0.74, bluegill sunfish 0.45mg/l. Due to rapid hydrolysis, it is unlikely that this toxicity will be expressed in natural aquatic systems.

Daphnia:  LC50(48h) 0.035mg/l. Due to rapid hydrolysis, it is unlikely that this toxicity will be expressed in natural aquatic systems.

Algae: EC50 for Selenastrum capricornutum >12mg/l.

Bees: Low toxicity to bees and predatory insects. LD50 (contact) 50μg/bee.

Worms:LC50 (14d) for earthworms >1000mg tech./kg.
