Thiophanate-Methyl APPLICATIONS
Biochemistry Carbendazim precursor. Mode of action Systemic fungicide with protective and curative action. Absorbed by the leaves and roots. Uses A fungicide used at 30-50 g a.i./ha and effective against a wide range of fungal pathogens including: eyespot and other diseases of cereals; scab on apples and pears; Monilia disease and Gloeosporium rot on apples; Monilia spp. on stone fruit; canker on fruit trees; powdery mildews on pome fruit, stone fruit, vegetables, cucurbits, strawberries, vines, roses, etc.; Botrytis and Sclerotinia spp. on various crops; leaf spot diseases on beet, oilseed rape, celery, celeriac, etc.; club root on brassicas; dollar spot, Corticium, and Fusarium spp. on turf; grey mould in vines; Pyricularia oryzae in rice; sigatoka disease in bananas; and many diseases in floriculture. Also used on almonds, pecans, tea, coffee, peanuts, soya beans, tobacco, chestnuts, sugar cane, citrus fruit, figs, hops, mulberries, and many other crops.

Animals In rats, following oral administration, 61% is excreted in the urine and 35% in the faeces within 90 minutes after the last dose. Metabolism involves cyclisation to carbendazim (q.v.). The principal metabolite in rats is methyl 5-hydroxybenzimidazol-2-carbamate. Plants In plants, cyclisation occurs, leading to the formation of carbendazim (q.v.). Soil/Environment Soil persistence is c. 3-4 weeks. In soil, in aqueous solution, and under the influence of u.v. light, cyclisation occurs, leading to the formation of carbendazim (q.v.). This then undergoes degradation to 2-aminobenzimidazole and 5-hydroxy-2-aminobenzimidazole. Soil adsorption Kd 1.2.
