4. ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Iron-EDTA 60g/kg

5. COST: $4.78 per L or kg.

6. CHEMICAL GROUP: .

7. RELATED PESTICIDES:


8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A molluscide containing Iron-EDTA for controlling snails and slugs. Approved fro use on organic farms.
EDTA is a polyamino carboxylic acid and is a chelating agent that binds ions like iron and makes them water soluble.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Spread evenly and don't heap pellets.
Ensure pellets are not trapped in the crop canopy.
Best results in damp, humid conditons when snails and slugs are most active.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

None recommended

11. EQUIPMENT:

Use equipment that spreads pellets evenly.

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

NA
None

14. WEATHER:

Best results and longer action in fine conditions.

15. RAINFASTNESS:

0 hours

16. SOIL:

No specific effect.

17. PLANT HEALTH and OTHER EFFECTS:

Good crop safety.

18. WITHHOLDING PERIODS:

7 days grazing for all crops and pastures.
7 days grazing for all crops and pastures.

19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

Not required.

20. MODE OF ACTION:

A stomach poison.
Snails and slugs feed on the product then tend to seek shelter beore dying.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

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

22. TOXICITY:

Poison schedule - S0
Summary: Low toxicity. Used as a food additive.
Details:
Poison schedule - S0. Exempt.
Mammalian toxicity -
Acute oral LD50 - >5000 mg/kg (rats), [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal LD50 - > mg/kg (rabbit).
Skin - Moderate irritant (rabbit). May irritate sensitive skin.
Eye - Moderate irritant (rabbit). Dust may irritate eyes.
Vapour inhalation - LC50 - > mg/L air (rat). Dust may cause irritation and coughing.
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - ppm for two years.
May have weak genotoxic and cytotoxic properties.
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) -

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

May cause discomfort and in large amounts, gastro-intestinal irritation and
abdominal pain with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation and
lethargy. The pellets may scratch the mouth and throat.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Rinse mouth with water. Give plenty of water to drink.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water.
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. Poisoning with this product unlikely. Test symptomatically. Stomach contents can be emptied to relieve discomfort. Use of a 1.5% Sodium Bicarbonate solution will increase stomach pH, further reducing absorption or iron. Cereal components of the pellets also limit absorption of iron EDTA.
