13 SPRAYER DECONTAMINATION:

Clean Up:

Clean soon after spraying to reduce the risk of forming dried deposits that may be difficult to remove.

Remove filters and clean separately. Triple rinse with water or water plus 0.25% wetting agent and run through boom.

Decontamination:

Remove filters and clean separately.

Rinse with water and drain.

Quarter fill the tank with an alkali detergent (eg 500 mL or g of Drive, Dynamo, Omo, or Surf per 100 L water) and circulate for at least 15 minutes then run through boom. Rinse twice with water.

14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:

Tolerant plants are expected to occur and may dominate the weed population after repeated applications.

24 TOXICITY:

Summary:

Dangerous poison.

May irritate eyes and skin. Harmful if swallowed. Avoid breathing spray mist.

Details:

Poison schedule: S7. Dangerous poison.

Mammalian toxicity: Toxic.

Acute oral LD50: 730 mg/kg (rat), [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]

Acute dermal LD50: >2000 mg/kg (rabbit).

Skin: Mild irritant.

Eye: Irritant.

Vapour inhalation: LC50 > 2.9 mg/L air (rat, 4hour) for molinate

Chronic oral toxicity: NOEL 0.2 mg/kg/day mg/kg for two years.

Carcinogenicity: Molinate has been classified in the occupational environment as a Carcinogen Category 3 substance. This means that the substance is not classifiable as to carcinogenicity to humans.

Molinate has potential for developmental toxicity in animal studies on repeated or prolonged exposure.

Molinate was overall negative in a battery of genotoxicity assays. In a two-year feeding study, male rats receiving 300ppm of molinate per day, showed an increased incidence of kidney tumours. This effect was not seen in female rats or in male or female mice at any dose level. A developmental study in mice revealed no teratogenic effects.

Short-term repeated exposure in rats to molinate (4-45 mg/kg bw/day) resulted in decreased fertility in male rats. This effect was reversible upon cessation of exposure.

Doses of 60-180 mg/kg bw/day of molinate were fed to rats and dogs for 90 days. Effects were noted in the kidneys, testes and ovaries.

Embryo/foetotoxic effects were seen only in the presence of maternal toxicity.

NOEL: 0.2 mg/kg/day.

Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI): 0.002 mg/kg/day.

Other Species:

Birds: toxicity.

Fish: Low toxicity LC50 (96 hour) = 13 mg/L (rainbow trout). LC50 (96 hour) 29 mg/L (bluegill sunfish).

Invertebrates: toxicity.

Bees: toxicity. Do not spray on vegetation where honeybees are foraging.

Arthropods: toxicity.

Earthworms:

Algae:

Accumulation: Molinate is rapidly metabolized and excreted, mainly in the urine.

25 TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Exposure to molinate, followed by the ingestion of alcohol causes adverse effects, including a reduction in blood pressure, rapid heart beat and flushing of the skin.

May cause irritation to mucous membranes.

Breathing vapour can result in headaches, dizziness and possible nausea.

May irritate the skin. Prolonged contact with the concentrate can cause defatting of the skin and may result in dermatitis.

The concentrate will cause irritation of the eyes.

Chronic Effects Evidence from animal studies indicate that repeated or prolonged exposure to molinate can result in neuropathy.

26 FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED: Do NOT induce vomiting. Rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Give a glass of water to sip.

Seek medical advice immediately.

Do NOT give anything by mouth to a semiconscious or unconscious patient.

Make every effort to prevent vomit from entering the lungs by careful

placement of the patient.

If in EYES: Irrigate with plenty of water for 5 minutes, then remove contact lenses if present and irrigate for another 10 minutes.

If on SKIN: Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water. If irritation persists, seek medical advice

If INHALED: Remove patient to fresh air. See a doctor if symptoms develop.

Advice to doctor: Treat symptomatically.
