Carbendazim chemical review


Carbendazim (methyl benzimidazol-2-ylcarbamate) is a systemic benzimidazole fungicide used to control a broad range of diseases on pulses and macadamias and as a timber treatment fungicide. Before the review was finalised, carbendazim was also used on a wide range of horticultural crops, in post-harvest food storage, as a pre-planting ginger and sugarcane treatment.

The review of carbendazim began with the review of thiophanate-methyl. Thiophanate-methyl was finalised separately in November 2010 because of differences in use patterns and the lower toxicity of thiophanate-methyl.
