19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

20. MODE OF ACTION:

Chlorpyrifos component is an anticholinesterase inhibitor. It is non sytemic in the plant and acts on insects by direct contact, ingestion and inhalation. It affects the nervos system by binding to the cholinesterase enzyme which prevents break down of acetylcholine in the synapse of the nerve. This results in overstimulation of the neurons, neuotoxicity and death..
The bifenthrin is a sodim channel modulator. It has greater photo stability than other synthetic pyrethroids which gives it longer residual action. It enters insects and mites by contact and ingestion. It affect the central and peripheral nervous system by interfering with sodium channel gating causing paralysis and death. It is non sytemic in plants.
Rapid knockdown, contact and residual action.
Combination of an organophosphorous and synthetic pyrethroid inecticide.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

Some species may be resistant or develop resistance with continued application. Rotate with products from alternative groups.

Acute dermal LD50 - Chlorpyrifos >2000 mg/kg (rabbit).
Skin - Mildly irritating. Moderate sensitizer (Buehler method )
Eye - Mildly irritating. May cause redness and copiuos tears.
Vapour inhalation - LC50 - Chlorpyrifos >0.73 mg/L/4h (rat). Harmful if inhaled
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - ppm for two years.

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Symptoms of acute exposure to organophosphate or cholinesterase-inhibiting compounds may include the following: numbness, tingling sensations, incoordination, headache, dizziness, tremor, nausea, abdominal cramps, sweating, blurred vision, difficulty breathing or respiratory depression, and slow heartbeat. Very high doses may result in unconsciousness, incontinence, and convulsions or fatality.
Signs and symptoms associated with mild exposures to organophosphate and carbamate pesticides include: headache, fatigue, dizziness, loss of appetite with nausea, stomach cramps and diarrhoea; blurred vision associated with excessive tearing; contracted pupils of the eye; excessive sweating and salivation; slowed heartbeat, often fewer than 50 per minute; rippling of surface muscles just under the skin. These symptoms may be mistaken for those of flu, heat stroke or heat exhaustion, or upset stomach. Moderately severe organophosphate and carbamate insecticide poisoning cases exhibit all the signs and symptoms found in mild poisonings, but in addition, the victim: is unable to walk; often complains of chest discomfort and tightness; exhibits marked constriction of the pupils (pinpoint pupils); exhibits muscle twitching; has involuntary urination and bowel movement. Severe poisonings are indicated by incontinence, unconsciousness and seizures.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Contact Poison Information Centre 13 11 26. Activated charcoal or atropine may be advised. Hospital treatment may be necessary. Don't induce vomiting. Rinse mouth with water.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water.Take care not to rinse contaminated water into the unaffected eye or onto the face. Obtain medical attention immediately. Take special care if exposed person is wearing contact lenses.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.
If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air. contact a Poisons Information Centre. Urgent hospital treatment is likely to be needed. Remove source of contamination or move victim to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, oxygen may be beneficial if administered by trained personnel, preferably on a doctor's advice. DO NOT allow victim to move about unnecessarily. Symptoms of pulmonary oedema can be delayed up to 48 hours after exposure.
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
