Odour: Faint, characteristic odour.

Major Health Hazards: The rat oral LD50 for Captan ranges from 8400 to 15,000 mg/kg, indicating very low acute toxicity. The mouse LD50 is 7000 mg/kg. Sheep showed no effect at doses of 200 mg/kg, but experienced deaths at 250 mg/kg. The inhalation LC50 (2-hour) in mice is 5.0 mg/L. Rabbits showed little or no skin sensitization to Captan, while guinea pigs were moderately sensitive. Workers exposed to high concentrations of Captan in air (6 mg/m3) experienced eye irritation including burning, itching, and tearing. Skin irritation also occurred in some cases. toxic if inhaled, limited evidence of a carcinogenic effect, may cause serious damage to eyes, possible skin sensitiser.

Potential Health Effects

Persons sensitised to sensitisers identified in Section 11 should avoid contact with this product.

Inhalation:

Short term exposure: Available data shows that this product is toxic, but symptoms are not available. In addition product may be mildly irritating, although unlikely to cause anything more than mild transient discomfort.

Long term exposure: No data for health effects associated with long term inhalation.

Skin Contact:

Short term exposure: Classified as a potential sensitiser by skin contact. Exposure to a skin sensitiser, once sensitisation has occurred, may manifest itself as skin rash or inflammation, and in some individuals this reaction can be severe. However product is unlikely to cause any discomfort in normal use.

Long term expsoure: No data for health effects associated with long term skin exposure.

Eye Contact:

Short term exposure: This product is a severe eye irritant. Symptoms may include stinging and reddening of eyes and watering which may become copious. Other symptoms such as swelling of eyelids and blurred vision may also become evident. If exposure is brief, symptoms should disappear once exposure has ceased. However, lengthy exposure or delayed treatment is likely to cause permanent damage.

section 11 - Toxicological Information: 

Toxicity: 

Acute toxicity: The rat oral LD50 for Captan ranges from 8400 to 15,000 mg/kg, indicating very low acute toxicity. The mouse LD50 is 7000 mg/kg. Sheep showed no effect at doses of 200 mg/kg, but experienced deaths at 250 mg/kg. The inhalation LC50 (2-hour) in mice is 5.0 mg/L. Rabbits showed little or no skin sensitization to Captan, while guinea pigs were moderately sensitive. Workers exposed to high concentrations of Captan in air (6 mg/m3) experienced eye irritation including burning, itching, and tearing. Skin irritation also occurred in some cases.

Chronic toxicity: Rats fed up to 750 mg/kg/day of 80% Captan for 4 weeks had decreased food intake and body weights. No deaths occurred in pigs given as much as 420 to 4000 mg/kg/day in the diet for 12 to 25 weeks, however, cattle given six doses of 250 mg/kg experienced varied toxic effects, including death.

Reproductive effects: Pregnant mice exposed by inhalation to high doses of Captan for 4 hours a day during days 6 to 15 of gestation showed significant mortality or weight loss. Foetal mortality accompanied these effects. Mice fed 50 mg/kg/day over three generations reproduced normally. Captan is unlikely to cause reproductive effects in humans at usual levels of exposure.

Teratogenic effects: Teratogenicity studies with rats, rabbits, hamsters, and dogs have given both negative and positive results. However, the weight of evidence suggests that Captan does not produce birth defects.

Mutagenic effects: Although Captan was mutagenic in some laboratory tests on isolated tissue cultures, the majority of evidence indicates that Captan is nonmutagenic.

Carcinogenic effects: There is strong evidence that Captan causes cancer in female mice and in male rats at high doses. In addition, Captan is chemically similar to two other pesticides, Folpet and Captafol, that have been shown to produce cancer in test animals. Tumours were associated with the gastrointestinal tract and, to a lesser degree, with the kidneys. Tumours appeared in the test animals at doses of about 300 mg/kg/day.

Organ toxicity: Most organ-specific effects are found in the kidneys of rats at and above doses of 100 mg/kg/day.

Fate in humans and animals: Studies in several animal species have shown that Captan is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and is rapidly metabolized. Residues are excreted primarily in the urine. Rats given Captan orally excreted a third in the faeces and half in the urine within 24 hours. A cow fed small amounts in its diet for 4 days had no Captan in the milk at a 0.01 mg/L detection limit, nor could any be detected in the urine at a 0.1 mg/L detection limit.

There is no data to hand indicating any particular target organs.

Captan is Classed by SWA as a potential sensitiser by skin contact.

section 12 - Ecological Information: 

This product is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This product is biodegradable. It will not accumulate in the soil or water or cause long term problems. This product is unlikely to accumulate in body tissues. This product is unlikely to be mobile in soils.

Effects on birds: Captan is practically nontoxic to birds. The LD50 is greater than 5000 mg/kg in mallard ducks and pheasants. The LD50 is 2000 to 4000 mg/kg in bobwhite quail. High doses administered for 90 days to chickens caused an 80% reduction in the number of eggs produced, but had no effect on the fertility or hatchability of the eggs produced.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Captan is very highly toxic to fish. The LC50 (96-hour) for technical Captan ranges from 0.056 mg/L in cutthroat trout and chinook salmon to 0.072 mg/L in bluegill. The LC50 for Captan in the aquatic invertebrate Daphnia magna is 7 to 10 mg/L, indicating that the compound is moderately toxic to this and other aquatic invertebrates. Captan has a low to moderate tendency to accumulate in living tissue. Fish exposed for 3 days to concentrations which would be expected in a pond following treatment of an adjacent watershed at a rate of 1kg/hectare, had no detectable residues of Captan. Estimates of the bioconcentration factor range from 10 to 1000.

Effects on other organisms: Captan is not toxic to bees when used as directed.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Captan has a low persistence in soil, with a half-life of 1 to 10 days in most soil environments. Captan was not detected in field studies of its mobility at application rates of up to 42 kg active ingredient per hectare.

Breakdown in water: Captan is rapidly degraded in near neutral water. Half-lives of 23 to 54 hours and 1 to 7 hours have been reported at various acidities and temperatures. The effective residual life in water is 2 weeks.

Breakdown in vegetation: Captan is taken up through leaves and roots and translocated throughout the plant. Residual fungitoxicity remains for 23 days after application on potato leaves, but residues were below the detection limit within 40 days after application. Some varieties of apples, pears, lettuce seeds, celery, and tomato seeds may be injured by Captan at high doses.

section 13 - Disposal Considerations: 

Disposal: Instructions concerning the disposal of this product and its containers are given on the registered label. These should be carefully followed.
