Metalaxyl's production may result in its release to the environment through various waste streams; its use as a fungicide results in its direct release to the environment. If released to air, a vapor pressure of 5.62×10-6 mm Hg at 25 deg C indicates metalaxyl will exist in both the vapor and particulate phases in the ambient atmosphere. Vapor-phase metalaxyl 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 14 hrs. Particulate-phase metalaxyl will be removed from the atmosphere by wet and dry deposition. If released to soil, metalaxyl is expected to have very high to moderate mobility based upon a Koc range from 30 to 284. Volatilization from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process based upon an estimated Henry's Law constant of 3.0×10-9 atm-cu m/mole. Metalaxyl undergoes fairly rapid degradation in soils incubated aerobically with a half-life of approx 40 days. Also 14C-metalaxyl was readily metabolized in soil with a history of fungicide treatment with a half-life of 14 days. If released into water, metalaxyl is not expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment based upon the range 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. An estimated BCF of 4 suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low. Metalaxyl is resistant to chemical hydrolysis under environmental conditions. Photolysis of metalaxyl in aqueous solution using UV light with wavelengths greater than 290 nm results in 10% substrate transformation in 3 hours. Long time (65 hr) irradiation under artificial sunlight in the presence of humic acids results in 65% degradation of metalaxyl. Occupational exposure to metalaxyl may occur through inhalation and dermal contact with this compound at workplaces where metalaxyl is produced or used. Monitoring data indicate that the general population may be exposed to metalaxyl via ingestion of food contaminated with this compound. (SRC)

Usage: Fungicide reported by F. J. Schwinn et al. (Mitt. Biol. Bundesanst. Land-Fortswirtsch. Berlin-Dahlem, 1977, 178, 145) and by P. A. Urech (Proc. 1977 Br. Crop. Prot. Conf. - Pests Dis., 1977, 2, 623). Introduced by Ciba-Geigy AG (now Syngenta AG) and first marketed in 1979. Manufacturers: Agrochem; Jingma; Rallis; Sharda; Syngenta.

Application: Biochemistry Inhibits protein synthesis in fungi, by interference with the synthesis of ribosomal RNA. Systemic fungicide with protective and curative action, absorbed through the leaves, stems, and roots. Used to control diseases caused by air- and soil- borne Peronosporales on a wide range of temperate, subtropical and tropical crops. Foliar sprays with mixtures of metalaxyl and protectant fungicides are recommended to control air-borne diseases caused by Pseudoperonospora humuli on hops, Phytophthora infestans on potatoes and tomatoes, Peronospora tabacina on tobacco, Plasmopara viticola on vines, Bremia lactucae on lettuce, and downy mildews on various vegetables, at 200-300 g/ha. Soil applications of metalaxyl alone are used to control soil-borne pathogens causing root and lower stem rots on avocado and citrus, at 500-1500 g/ha. Seed treatments control systemic Peronosporaceae on maize, peas, sorghum and sunflowers, as well as damping-off (Pythium spp.) of various crops.
