Acephates degradation product, methamidophos, can be very highly toxic to birds on an acute basis. No MRIDDEB 6350.
Laboratory animals are purposely given high enough doses to cause toxic effects. Application amount and frequency From 1 July 2015, acephate products can be applied at a maximum rate of 3,500 g of acephate per hectare and no more than three times per crop cycle. Acephate is moderately toxic to birds, depending on the species. This same study showed residues of both acephate and methamidophos on carrots and potatoes even though no direct spraying of the underground portion of these crops occurred.
