Environmental Fate - Ecotoxicology - Human Health - A to Z Index - Home

SUMMARY

A novel nematicide which is not approvd for use in the EU. It has a moderate oral toxicity and low by dermal and inhalation routes. It is an irritant and skin sensitiser. Fluensulfone can be expected to dissipate rather rapidly in the environment and has a low to moderate toxicity to fauna and flora.
