ADI: 0.01 mg/kg bw per day (1987)No Australian ARfD established
- Very toxic by inhalation. As it is applied with air blast equipment (to penetrate canopy), it may present inhalation risks to workers; the current risk mitigation measures may not be adequate. Further, there are no REI on the labels. Additional PPE and label instructions may be needed to address worker safety issues.
- The EU assessment found high persistence in environment and high aquatic toxicity.
- Higher spray drift risk from air blast application.
- Current dietary exposure estimates are close the ADI indicating very little scope to include additional commodities in future MRL requests.
- Considered highly important for pest management in citrus, papaya and other horticulture crops.
