Thiophanate-methyl chemical review
Thiophanate-methyl [dimethyl ((1,2-phenylene) bis(iminocarbonothioyl)) bis(carbamate)] is a systemic benzimidazole fungicide used in Australia to control soil-borne diseases in ornamental plants.
Thiophanate-methyl breaks down in plants and the environment to form carbendazim, and its use of can lead to residues of carbendazim in treated commodities. For this reason, the APVMA conducted concurrent reviews of carbendazim and thiophanate-methyl.
