  • Carbofuran is one of the most toxic carbamate pesticides. It is marketed under the trade names Furadan.
  • It is used to control insects in a wide variety of field crops, including potatoes, corn and soybeans. It is a systemic insecticide, which means that the plant absorbs it through the roots, and from here the plant distributes it throughout its organs where insecticidal concentrations are attained.
  • The technical or chemical name of carbofuran is 2,3-dihydro-2,2-dimethyl-7-benzofuranyl methylcarbamate and its CAS number is 1563-66-2 and it is manufactured by reaction of methyl isocyanate with 2,3-dihydro-2,2-dimethyl-7-hydroxybenzofuran.
  • Carbofuran is also known to be highly toxic to birds. In its granular form, a single grain will kill a bird. Birds often eat numerous grains of the pesticide, mistaking them for seeds, and then die shortly thereafter.
  • Carbofuran is used sparingly in the US. It is applied directly onto soil around plants after their emergence to control beetles, nematodes, and rootworm. It is used most often on alfalfa and rice and was once used on corn, though that use has been terminated.
  • Symptoms of carbofuran poisoning include: nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps,  sweating, diarrhea, excessive salivation,  weakness, imbalance, blurring of vision, breathing difficulty, increased blood pressure, and incontinence.
  • Death may result at high doses from respiratory system failure associated with carbofuran exposure. Complete recovery from an acute poisoning by carbofuran, with no long-term health effects, is possible if exposure ceases and the victim has time to regain their normal level of cholinesterase and to recover from symptoms.
  • Carbofuran is moderately persistent in soils, with a half-life from 30 to 120 days, depending on conditions. In soil, carbofuran is degraded by chemical hydrolysis and biodegradation.
  • Carbofuran is soluble in water and is highly mobile in soils. Carbofuran has a high potential for groundwater contamination, and has been detected in aquifers and surface waters.
  • According to the Ecological Incident Investigation System, carbofuran has been responsible for more avian deaths than any other pesticide.
