4. ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: PROPARGITE 600g/L

5. COST: $23.62 per L or kg.

6. CHEMICAL GROUP: 14A.

7. RELATED PESTICIDES:

PROPARGITE 600g/L

8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

Miticide

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Do not use after 20% of Cotton Bolls are open.
Apply 2 sprays 14 days apart to achieve best control.
Ensure thorough coverage.
Maximum control occurs about 2 weeks after spraying.
Tank mixing with EC synthetic pyrethroids may give improved control of Helicoverpa armigera that are partially resistant to synthetic pyrethroids.
Do not feed treated material or failed crops to livestock. (NB Withholding period for propargite on fruit and vegetables for human consumption is 3-7days)

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

None recommended.
Addition of wetting agents or oils may caused increased crop phytotoxicity.

11. EQUIPMENT:

Ground: Use droppers in cotton with nozzles 15 cm below terminals angled upwards. Angle nozzles to inrease spray deposits on the underside of leaves.
Aerial: 150-200 micron droplets.

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

100-160 L/ha or more for ground application.
20 L/ha or more for aerial application with 150-200 micron droplets.
Use sufficient water to achieve good coverage.

14. WEATHER:

15. RAINFASTNESS:

6 hours

16. SOIL:

17. PLANT HEALTH and OTHER EFFECTS:

May cause leaf reddening and spotting on cotton but without any adverse effect to the crop.
Spraying in the late afternoon or evening and when the crop is not under stress will minimise symptoms.
Do not apply after 20% of cotton bolls are open.

18. WITHHOLDING PERIODS:

19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

20. MODE OF ACTION:

A group 14A, organosulfur, non systemic insecticide that acts as an inhibitor of magnesium stimulated ATPase.
It is not an ovicide. 2 sprays 14 days apart may be needed for good mite control.
Contact and residual action.
It is slow acting and maximum efficacy may take 2 weeks.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

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

22. TOXICITY:

Poison schedule - S6
Summary: Harmful if swallowed. Irritating to eyes. May cause lung damage if swallowed.
Details:
Poison schedule - S6.
Mammalian toxicity -
Acute oral LD50 - 2800 mg/kg (rats), 311 mg/kg (rabbit). [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal LD50 - 4000 mg/kg (rabbit).
Skin - Severe irritant (rabbit). Not a skin sensitiser (guinea pig)
Eye - Severe irritant (rabbit).
Vapour inhalation - LC50 - 0.89 mg/L/4hr air (rat).
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - ppm for two years.
Not mutagenic (i.e. does not cause cancer or reproductive problems). In animal studies teratogenic effects only occurred at maternally toxic doses. It is not classed as teratogenic. It is an experimental animal carcinogen when the maximum tolerated dose is exceeded. At normal doses it is not considered carcinogenic.
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) -
Noel (2 year feeding trial) - 45 mg/kg/day (rats). 22 mg/kg/day (dogs).
Enlarged and/or dark red lymph nodes that were associated with abdominal masses were seen in rats fed 100 mg/kg/day for 2 years.

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Swallowing - nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, depression, abdominal pain and central nervous system depression. There is a risk of vomit entering the lungs if victim uncoordinated causing aspiration pneumonia or inflammation of the lungs.
Irritates eyes.
May irritate skin and have a degreasing action. Repeated or prolonged exposure may lead to contact dermatitis.
Vapour may irritate mucous membranes and respiratory tract.
Inhalation may cause dizziness, headache and nausea. High concentrations may cause loss of coordination. impaired judgement and eventually unconsciousness.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Rinse mouth with water. Give a glass of water to drink if conscious. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do not induce vomiting. See a doctor.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water. See a doctor immediately. Transport to hospital.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water. See a doctor if irritation occurs.
If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air. Keep at rest until fully recovered. See a doctor if effects persist.
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
