19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

20. MODE OF ACTION:

Active by contact and ingestion for insects. Acts on the insects nervous system.
A group 3A, synthetic pyrethroid, insecticide that acts as a voltage dependent sodium channel agonist.
Maximum kill may not be achieved until 48 hours after spraying.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

Group 3A Insecticide.
Some insect populations may be tolerant to this product.
Follow resistant management strategies in summer cropping areas to reduce risk of resistance build up in Helicoverpa populations.
Don't use on populations that have not been controlled by previous synthetic pyrethroid sprays.

22. TOXICITY:

Poison schedule - S6
Mammalian toxicity - Moderately toxic.
Acute oral LD50 - mg/kg
Acute dermal LD50 - mg/kg
Vapour inhalation - LD50 mg/L
Skin - irritating.
Eye - irritating
Main exposure routes - Handling concentrate. Air blast application. Other application methods.
Birds -toxic. LD50 is mg/kg.
Fish - toxic. LC50 is ppm.
Invertebrates - toxic. LC50 is ppm.
Bees - Highly toxic initially but safe once spray has dried.

Summary:
Details:
Poison schedule - S
Mammalian toxicity -
Acute oral LD50 - mg/kg (rats), [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal LD50 - > mg/kg (rabbit).
Skin -
Eye -
Vapour inhalation - LC50 - > mg/L air (rat).
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - ppm for two years.
Not mutagenic or teratogenic (i.e. does not cause cancer or reproductive problems).
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) -

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Facial Skin contact may cause temporary facial numbness. Repeated exposure may cause allergic reactions.
Initial symptoms include headache, nausea, lack of appetite and fatigue during exposure or several hours later. Dizziness, vomiting, stomach pains, contracted pupils, muscle weakness, twitching, tremor, slow heart beat, blurred vision and sweating may occur with higher exposure levels.
Continual low level exposure may cause influenza like symptoms.

24. FIRST AID:

Contact a doctor or poison information centre on Australia 131 126.
If swallowed and more than 15 minutes from hospital - induce vomiting - preferably with Ipecac Syrup APF.
If in eyes - hold eyes open and flush with water for 15 minutes and see a doctor.
Give atropine (0.6mg) tablets every quarter hour then every half hour until signs of flushed face, dilated pupils, dry mouth and fast pulse appear. Medical attention must be sought after taking atropine.
Remove contaminated clothing and wash skin.
If breathing has stopped apply resuscitation
Poisoning usually occurs through skin absorption. Effects are cumulative and dangerous levels may develop before symptoms become noticeable. If you are exposed to organophosphate for more than 30 hours per month then levels of acetylcholinesterase enzyme should be regularly checked. If levels drop below 60% of normal then work with organophosphates should stop until levels improve. This may take several weeks.

25. PROTECTIVE CLOTHING:

26 RE ENTRY PERIODS and OTHER SAFETY ISSUES:

After spray has dried.

27. PROPERTIES:

8-10 days residual activity can be expected on Native Budworm but this is reduced in high temperature and high light conditions.
