Skin - Non irritating (Rabbit), non sensitising (Guinea Pig)
Eye - Slightly irritating (Rabbit). May be an eye irritant
Vapour inhalation - LC50 - >3.3 mg/L air (rat). May irritate mucous membranes of nose and mouth.
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - 4 mg/kg bw/day for two years.
Not mutagenic in the Ames assay (i.e. not likely to cause birth defects). Classified as a Category 3 carcinogen (i.e. insufficient evidence to categorise as a carcinogen). Increased incidence of tumours have been reported in rodents fed high doses.
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) - 0.04 mg/kg/day.
NOEL - 4 mg/kg bw/day for two years.
23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:
Nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and loss of coordination.
Small amounts (of the seed dressing formulation which contains hydrocarbon solvent) aspirated into lungs on vomiting after ingestion ma cause pulmonary oedema or bronchopneumonia.
24. FIRST AID:
If SWALLOWED - Rinse mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. Rest patient and contact a doctor.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water. Contact a doctor.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.
If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air.
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
Advice to doctor - Treat symptomatically. Anticonvulsive therapy is not appropriate. No specific antidote.

Fish - modreately toxic. LC50 = 2.25-6.7 ppm.
Invertebrates - very toxic to aquatic invertebrates. EC50 0.25 ppm
Bees - Low toxicity.
Algae - Moderately toxic. IC50 15.3 mg/L
It is rapidly metabolised in soil with a half life of 7 to >60 days with an average of 14 days.
Breaks down rapidly in water under aerobic conditions and more slowly under nearly anaerobic conditions.
Readlily degraded by UV light.
Rapidly broken down in the plant after being taken up by the roots.
It has an EPA classification for soil mobility that ranges from
Ground water contamination is unlikely.
