Emergency Overview
May be harmful by inhalation, ingestion, skin adsorption. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Do not take internally.
Physical State
powder
Appearance

Chronic or Delayed Long-Term
Severe and permanent lung damage may result. Excessive long-term exposure to respirable crystalline silica may cause silicosis, a form of progressive pulmonary fibrosis. This product contains respirable crystalline silica.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure
No specific medical conditions are known which may be aggravated by exposure to this product. As with all materials which can cause upper respiratory tract irritation, persons with a history of asthma, emphysema, or hyperreactive airways disease may be more susceptible to overexposure. Pulmonary and
respiratory diseases may be aggravated by exposure to respirable crystalline silica.

SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

General
In case of poisoning, call the Medical Emergency Telephone Number on page 1.
Eye
Hold eye open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15-20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue rinsing eye. Call a poison control center or doctor for treatment advice.
Skin
Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a poison control center or doctor for treatment advice.
Ingestion
Call a poison control center or doctor immediately for treatment advice. Have person sip a glass of water if able to swallow. DO NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by a physician or poison control center. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person.
Inhalation
Move to fresh air. If person is not breathing, call 911 or an ambulance, then give artificial respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth if possible. Call a poison control center or doctor for further treatment advice.
Notes to Physician
Treatment
Treat symptomatically.

SECTION 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Fire Fighting Instructions

Keep out of smoke. Fight fire from upwind position. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Contain contaminated water/fire fighting water. Dike area to prevent runoff and contamination of water sources. Equipment or materials involved in pesticide fires may become contaminated. Prevent use of
contaminated buildings, area and equipment until decontaminated.

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Methods for Cleaning Up
Keep unnecessary people away, isolate hazard area and deny entry. Avoid contact with spilled product or contaminated surfaces.
Additional Advice
Avoid breathing dust. Use recommended protective equipment while carefully sweeping up spilled material. Place in covered container for reuse or disposal. Scrub contaminated area with soap and water. Rinse with water. Use dry absorbent material such as clay granules to absorb and collect wash solution for proper disposal. Avoid dust formation. Contaminated soil may have to be removed and disposed. Do not allow material to enter streams, sewers, or other waterways or contact vegetation.

SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Storing Procedures

Do not contaminate water, food, or feed by storage or disposal.

Store in a cool, dry place and in such a manner as to prevent cross contamination with other pesticides, fertilizers, food, and feed. Store in original container and out of the reach of children, preferably in a locked storage area.

Work/Hygienic Procedures

Wash hands always before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.

Remove clothing immediately if pesticide gets inside. Then wash thoroughly and put on clean clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.

SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

General Protection

SECTION 11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Acute toxicity studies have not been performed on this product but have been bridged from the acute toxicity database of similar “50 WP” formulations performed on the two separate active ingredients, triadimefon and trifloxystrobin, as well as, the acute toxicity database of each active ingredient. The acute toxicity values presented represent the expected US EPA Toxicity Category III classification for each acute hazard. The nonacute information pertains to the technical-grade active ingredients.

Acute Oral Toxicity
rat: > 500 – 5,000 mg/kg
Acute Dermal Toxicity
rat: > 2,000 – 5,000 mg/kg
Acute Inhalation Toxicity

rat: LC50: > 0.5 – 2.0 mg/l
Exposure time: 4 h
Determined in the form of dust.

male/female rat: LC50: > 2.0 – 8.0 mg/l
Exposure time: 1 h
Determined in the form of dust.
Extrapolated from the 4 hr LC50.

Skin Irritation
rabbit: Moderate skin irritation.
Eye Irritation
rabbit: Mild eye irritation.
Sensitization
guinea pig: May cause sensitisation by skin contact.
Subchronic Toxicity

TRIADIMEFON: In subacute dermal toxicity studies in rats and rabbits, triadimefon caused slight dermal irritation and/or increases in activity and reactivity. In a subchronic inhalation study, daily exposure to triadimefon resulted in increased organ weights (liver).

TRIFLOXYSTROBIN: In a 28-day dermal toxicity study in rats, trifloxystrobin was tolerated without local effects at doses up to and including the limit dose of 1000 mg/kg. Systemic effects were observed in males at the limit dose and included increased organ weights (liver & kidney).

Chronic Toxicity
TRIADIMEFON: The major organs affected from long-term exposure to triadimefon in chronic studies in rats and dogs were the liver and/or thyroid (secondary effects).

TRIFLOXYSTROBIN: The major organ affected from long-term exposure to trifloxystrobin in chronic studies in mice and dogs was the liver.

Assessment Carcinogenicity

TRIADIMEFON: EPA has classified triadimefon as a Group C (possible human carcinogen) based on borderline statistically significant increases in thyroid adenomas in male rats, and increases in liver adenomas in both sexes in mice. The Agency used a non-linear methodology approach for determining the Margin of Exposure (MOE) for the estimation of human cancer risk because the tumors were benign, and there were no apparent genotoxicity concerns. Therefore, EPA has a reasonable certainty that no harm will result from exposure to residues of triadimefon.

TRIFLOXYSTROBIN: Trifloxystrobin is not carcinogenic based on oncogenicity studies in rats and mice.

Reproductive & Developmental Toxicity

TRIADIMEFON TECHNICAL REPRODUCTION: In reproduction studies in rats, triadimefon caused reproductive effects (e.g., smaller litter sizes) in conjunction with parental toxicity at the highest dose tested.

DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Triadimefon is not a primary developmental toxicant based on developmental toxicity studies in rats and rabbits. Malformations were observed in both species but only at maternally-toxic dose levels.

TRIFLOXYSTROBIN TECHNICAL REPRODUCTION: Trifloxystrobin is not a primary reproductive toxicant based on a two-generation reproduction study in rats

DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Trifloxystrobin is not a primary developmental toxicant based on developmental toxicity studies in rats and rabbits. Any developmental effects observed were secondary to maternal toxicity.

Neurotoxicity
TRIADIMEFON: Triadimefon caused prominent hyperactivity-related neurobehavioral changes in acute (oral gavage) and subchronic (diet) neurotoxicity screening studies in rats. There were no neuropathologic alterations in the skeletal muscle or neural tissues in either study.

TRIFLOXYSTROBIN: Trifloxystrobin is not a primary neurotoxicant based on an acute (oral gavage) neurotoxicity screening study in rats.

Mutagenicity
TRIADIMEFON: Triadimefon is not considered genotoxic or mutagenic based on in vitro and in vivo mutagenicity studies.

TRIFLOXYSTROBIN: Trifloxystrobin is not considered genotoxic or mutagenic based on in vitro and in vivo mutagenicity studies.
