Profenofos' production may result in its release to the environment through various waste streams; its use as an insecticide will result in its direct release to the environment. If released to air, a vapor pressure of 9.00×10-7 mm Hg at 25 deg C indicates profenofos will exist in both the vapor and particulate phases in the ambient atmosphere. Vapor-phase profenofos will be degraded in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals; the half-life for this reaction in air is estimated to be 8.6 hrs. Particulate-phase profenofos will be removed from the atmosphere by wet and dry deposition. Profenofos is stable towards direct photolysis in water and on soil. If released to soil, profenofos is expected to have very low to slight mobility based upon a range of Koc values from 869 to 3,162. Volatilization from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process based upon an estimated Henry's Law constant of 2.21×10-8 atm-cu m/mole. Profenofos metabolizes rapidly in alkaline aerobic conditions with a half-life of 2 days. The rate of metabolism is influenced by chemical hydrolysis; aerobic metabolism in neutral and acid conditions is likely to be slower. Profenofos also metabolizes rapidly in alkaline anaerobic conditions with a half-life of 3 days. If released into water, profenofos is expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment based upon the range of Koc values. Volatilization from water surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process based upon this compound's estimated Henry's Law constant. A range of BCF values in fish of 29 to 682 suggests bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is moderate to high. Hydrolysis half-lives of profenofos are 104-108 days, 24-62 days, and 0.33 days for pHs 5,7, and 9, respectively. Occupational exposure to profenofos may occur through dermal contact with this compound at workplaces where profenofos is produced or used. The general population may be exposed to profenofos near agricultural areas where it is used as a pesticide.

Usage: Profenofos was developed by Novartis Crop Protection in 1975. Profenofos can be used on a variety of crops including cotton and vegetables such as maize, potato, soybean, and sugar beet. It was first registered in the United States in 1982. In the United States it is used exclusively on cotton and is primarily used against lepidopteran insects.

Application: Non-systemic insecticide and acaricide with contact and stomach action. Exhibits a translaminar effect. Has ovicidal properties. Control of insects (particularly Lepidoptera) and mites on cotton, maize, sugar beet, soya beans, potatoes, vegetables, tobacco, and other crops, at 250-1000 a.i.g/ha.
