4. ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Carbendazim 500 g/L

5. COST: $12.65 per L or kg.

6. CHEMICAL GROUP: 1.

7. RELATED PESTICIDES:

Carbendazim 500 g/L
Thiabendazole 500g/L

8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A systemic fungicide. It as a Group A fungicide belonging to the benzimidazole group.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Apply by dip or boom or sprayer that applies an even coverage to all surfaces.
Use a non ionic wetting agent on hard to wet crops.
If produce is for export then check with exporters for import tolerances and MRL's for the intended market.
Keep well agitated as the product tends to settle.
If post harvest treatments are planned use a fungicide with a different mode of action for the last pre harvest spray.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

11. EQUIPMENT:

Sprayers that provide good and even penetration into the crop canopy are required.

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

Dispose of spent dip in a limed pit.
For boom sprays;
Triple rinse with water and wetting agent.
Physically clean deposits from strainers and other areas where deposits build up.

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

Apply in water.
High volume applications of 100-2000 L/ha water are used to ensure good coverage of surfaces.

14. WEATHER:

Apply in fine weather. Best results are usually achieved if applications are made soon after disease spore germination.

15. RAINFASTNESS:

16. SOIL:

Little effect of soil type on performance.

20. MODE OF ACTION:

Systemic, foliar applied, or seed dressing.
Protectant that prevents infection of new foliage and fruit.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

Some strains of disease may be tolerant or develop tolerance to carbendazim. Use a rotation of fungicides with as many different modes of action as possible.

22. TOXICITY:

Poison schedule - S6
Summary: Low toxicity but may irritate eyes and skin.
Details:
Poison schedule - S6
Mammalian toxicity -
Acute oral LD50 - >5000 mg/kg (rats), [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal LD50 - > 5000 mg/kg (rat).
Skin - Slightly irritating in rabbit. Non sensitising in Guinea pig.
Eye - Slight irritant
Vapour inhalation - LC50 - > mg/L air (rat).
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - ppm for two years.
Category 3 mutagen (i.e. insufficient evidence to categorise as a mutagen). Conflicting results in carcinogenicity and mutagenicity studies. Reproductive and teratogenic effects are unlikely at expected exposure levels.
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) -

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Local skin or eye irritation.
No systemic symptoms documented over many years.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Wash mouth out with water. Do not induce vomiting. If large amounts swallowed then see a doctor.
