Dalapon (2,2-Dichloropropionic Acid)
Dalapon is an herbicide and green plant growth regulator used to control specific annual and perennial grasses. These grasses are generally around fruit, bean, corn, cotton and pea crops. It's also used in lawns, roadways and industrial areas.
Health Effects of Dalapon
Dalapon is moderately toxic to humans. Skin and inhalation exposure could be of significance to dalapon production workers, pesticide applicators, and some agricultural workers. The EPA has established a Lifetime Health Advisory (LHA) level of 200 micrograms per liter (ug/l) for dalapon in drinking water. Consumption of dalapon at high levels well above the LHA level over a long period of time has been shown to cause changes in kidney and liver weights in animal studies.
