22. TOXICITY:

Poison schedule - S6
Summary: Low toxicity.
Details:
Poison schedule - 6.
Mammalian toxicity - Slightly toxic.
Acute oral: Low toxicity. LD50 - >2000 mg/kg (rats) for product, 1517 mg/kg for propiconazole. [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal: Low toxicity. LD50 - > 2000 mg/kg (rat).
Skin - Slightly irritating (Rabbit), not sensitising. Some individuals have an allergenic response. Prolonged or repeated exposure may defat the skin and cause dermatitis.
Eye - Slightly irritating (Rabbit). May be an eye irritant
Vapour inhalation: Low toxicity. LC50 - > 5.0 mg/L air (rat). May irritate respiratory tract.
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - 4 mg/kg bw/day for two years.
Tebuconazole has shown reodroductive toxicity effects in lab experiments. Increased incidence of liver tumours have been reported in mice but appears to be specific to the mice and not relevant to humans.
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) - 0.04 mg/kg/day for lifetime exposure.
NOEL 4 mg/kg/day.

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Headache, dizziness, respiratory irritation, chemical pneumonitis.
Dermatitis.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Rinse mouth with water. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give a large quantity of water top drink DO NOT give water if the patient is unconscious or having convulsions. Rest patient and contact a doctor. (Vomiting may cause aspiration of product into the lungs causing chemical pneumonitis).
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water. Contact a doctor if irritation persists.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.
If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air. Contact a doctor.
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
Advice to doctor - Treat symptomatically. No specific antidote. Watch for delayed onset of pulmonary oedema.

Slowly degrades in soil with a half life of 40-70 days in soil and 25-85 days in aerobic aquatic systems at 25C.
It has an EPA classification for soil mobility that ranges from low to medium
Ground water contamination is unlikely.
Accumulation in milk and tissues.
Persistence and Degradability:
Propiconazole is stable in water
Propiconazole and tebuconazole are not persistent in soil
Mobility
Propiconazole has low to medium mobility in soil.
Environmental Fate (Exposure): Propiconazole degrades primarily by microbial action and hydroxylation and is ultimately mineralised
Bioaccumulative Potential: Propiconazole has low to medium potential to bioaccumulate. Tebuconazole does not bioaccumulate
