HOW TO PREPARE

This product is ready to use and needs no further preparation. The product is suitable for

application by sprinkling the granules over the area to be treated or by using a fertilizer

spreader suitable for granular fertilizers. These spreaders need to be correctly calibrated

before use. When applying the product ensure the amount of granules used corresponds to

the area to be treated. DO NOT mix this product with fertilizers or any other product.

Resistance Warning:

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

GROUP 1B INSECTICIDE

Barmac Chlorpyrifos G Granular Insecticide is an acetyl choline esterase inhibitor. For

insecticide resistance management Barmac Chlorpyrifos G Granular Insecticide is a Group

1B insecticide. Some naturally occurring individual insects resistant to Barmac Chlorpyrifos

G Granular Insecticide and other Group 1B insecticides may exist through normal genetic

variability in any insect population. The resistant insects will not be controlled by Barmac

Chlorpyrifos G Granular Insecticide and other Group 1B insecticides, thus resulting in

reduction on efficacy and possible yield loss. Since the occurrence of resistant insects is

difficult to detect prior to use, Amgrow Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may

result from the failure of and other Group 1B insecticides to control resistant insects.

Precautions:

PRECAUTIONS

Major Health Hazards:

Chlorpyrifos is harmful to humans. Symptoms of acute exposure to organophosphate or

cholinesterase-inhibiting compounds may include the following: numbness, tingling sensations, incoordination,

headache, dizziness, tremor, nausea, abdominal cramps, sweating, blurred vision, difficulty breathing or respiratory

depression, and slow heartbeat. Very high doses may result in unconsciousness, incontinence, and convulsions or

fatality. harmful if swallowed. Signs and symptoms associated with mild exposures to organophosphate and

carbamate pesticides include: headache, fatigue, dizziness, loss of appetite with nausea, stomach cramps and

diarrhoea; blurred vision associated with excessive tearing; contracted pupils of the eye; excessive sweating and

salivation; slowed heartbeat, often fewer than 50 per minute; rippling of surface muscles just under the skin. These

symptoms may be mistaken for those of flu, heat stroke or heat exhaustion, or upset stomach. Moderately severe

organophosphate and carbamate insecticide poisoning cases exhibit all the signs and symptoms found in mild

poisonings, but in addition, the victim: is unable to walk; often complains of chest discomfort and tightness; exhibits

marked constriction of the pupils (pinpoint pupils); exhibits muscle twitching; has involuntary urination and bowel

movement. Severe poisonings are indicated by incontinence, unconsciousness and seizures.

Section 11 - Toxicological Information

Toxicity:

An information profile for Chlorpyrifos is available at http://extoxnet.orst.edu/pips/ghindex.html

Acute toxicity: Chlorpyrifos is harmful to humans. Symptoms of acute exposure to organophosphate or

cholinesterase-inhibiting compounds may include the following: numbness, tingling sensations, incoordination,

headache, dizziness, tremor, nausea, abdominal cramps, sweating, blurred vision, difficulty breathing or respiratory

depression, and slow heartbeat. Very high doses may result in unconsciousness, incontinence, and convulsions or

fatality. Persons with respiratory ailments, recent exposure to cholinesterase inhibitors, cholinesterase impairment, or

liver malfunction are at increased risk from exposure to Chlorpyrifos. The oral LD

for Chlorpyrifos in rats is 95 to 270

mg/kg. The LD

for Chlorpyrifos is 60 mg/kg in mice, 1000 mg/kg in rabbits, 32 mg/kg in chickens, 500 to 504 mg/kg

in guinea pigs, and 800 mg/kg in sheep. The dermal LD

is greater than 2000 mg/kg in rats, and 1000 to 2000 mg/kg

in rabbits. The 4-hour inhalation LC

for Chlorpyrifos in rats is greater than 0.2 mg/L.

Chronic toxicity: Repeated or prolonged exposure to organophosphates may result in the same effects as acute

exposure including the delayed symptoms. Other effects reported in workers repeatedly exposed include impaired

memory and concentration, disorientation, severe depressions, irritability, confusion, headache, speech difficulties,

delayed reaction times, nightmares, sleepwalking, and drowsiness or insomnia. Rats and mice given technical

Chlorpyrifos in the diet for 104 weeks showed no adverse effects other than cholinesterase inhibition. Two-year

feeding studies using doses of 1 and 3 mg/kg/day of Chlorpyrifos in rats showed moderate depression of

cholinesterase. Cholinesterase levels recovered when the experimental feeding was discontinued. Identical results

occurred in a 2-year feeding study with dogs. Human volunteers who ingested 0.1 mg/kg/day of Chlorpyrifos for 4

weeks showed significant plasma cholinesterase inhibition.

Reproductive effects: Current evidence indicates that Chlorpyrifos does not adversely affect reproduction.

Poisons Information Centre: 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia, (0800 764 766 in New Zealand)

Teratogenic effects: Available evidence suggests that Chlorpyrifos is not teratogenic. No birth defects were seen in

the offspring of male and female rats fed 1.0 mg/kg/day during a three-generation reproduction and fertility study.

Mutagenic effects: There is no evidence that Chlorpyrifos is mutagenic. No evidence of mutagenicity was found in

any of four tests performed.

Carcinogenic effects: There is no evidence that Chlorpyrifos is carcinogenic.

Organ toxicity: Chlorpyrifos primarily affects the nervous system through inhibition of cholinesterase, an enzyme

required for proper nerve functioning.

Fate in humans and animals: Chlorpyrifos is readily absorbed into the bloodstream through the gastrointestinal tract

if it is ingested, through the lungs if it is inhaled, or through the skin if there is dermal exposure. In humans,

Chlorpyrifos and its principal metabolites are eliminated rapidly.

There is no data to hand indicating any particular

target organs.

Section 12 - Ecological Information

Toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects to the aquatic environment. This product is

biodegradable. It will not accumulate in the soil or water or cause long term problems.

Effects on birds: Chlorpyrifos is moderately to very highly toxic to birds.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Chlorpyrifos is very highly toxic to freshwater fish, aquatic invertebrates and

estuarine and marine organisms. Cholinesterase inhibition was observed in acute toxicity tests of fish exposed to very

low concentrations of this insecticide. Application of concentrations as low as 0.01 pounds of active ingredient per

acre may cause fish and aquatic invertebrate deaths. Due to its high acute toxicity and its persistence in sediments,

Chlorpyrifos may represent a hazard to sea bottom dwellers. Smaller organisms appear to be more sensitive than

larger ones.

Effects on other organisms: Aquatic and general agricultural uses of Chlorpyrifos pose a serious hazard to wildlife

and honeybees.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Chlorpyrifos is moderately persistent in soils. The half-life of Chlorpyrifos in

soil is usually between 60 and 120 days, but can range from 2 weeks to over 1 year, depending on the soil type,

climate, and other conditions. Chlorpyrifos adsorbs strongly to soil particles and it is not readily soluble in water. It is

therefore immobile in soils and unlikely to leach or to contaminate groundwater. TCP, the principal metabolite of

Chlorpyrifos, adsorbs weakly to soil particles and appears to be moderately mobile and persistent in soils.

Breakdown in water: The concentration and persistence of Chlorpyrifos in water will vary depending on the type of

formulation. The rate of hydrolysis is constant in acidic to neutral waters, but increases in alkaline waters. In water at

pH 7.0 and 25°C, it had a half-life of 35 to 78 days.

Breakdown in vegetation: Chlorpyrifos may be toxic to some plants, such as lettuce. Residues remain on plant

surfaces for approximately 10 to 14 days. Data indicate that this insecticide and its soil metabolites can accumulate in

certain crops.
