Summary: Low toxicity
Details:
Poison schedule - S5
Mammalian toxicity - Low
Acute oral LD50 - 2500 mg/kg (rats), [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal LD50 - >5000 mg/kg (rabbit).

Assessment toxicity to reproduction
Prothioconazole caused reproduction toxicity in a two-generation study in rats only at dose levels also toxic to the parent animals. The reproduction toxicity seen is related to parental toxicity.
Assessment developmental toxicity
Prothioconazole caused developmental toxicity only at dose levels toxic to the dams. The developmental effects seen with Prothioconazole are related to maternal toxicity.
