  • Linuron is an odorless, white crystalline solid.
  • Trade name: Alfanox, Linurex, Londax, Lorax.
  • It is labeled for field and storehouse use in such crops as soybean, cotton, potato, corn, celery, parsnips, sorghum, asparagus, and carrots. 
  • Linuron usually is applied after a crop has been planted but before weeds emerge, using ground or aerial equipment.
  • In some crops, such as carrots and celery, linuron is applied to newly emerging plants as an overtop spray.
  • It is slightly toxic by the oral, dermal and inhalation routes, and has been placed in Toxicity Category III for these effects.
  • It causes slight eye irritation in rabbits (Toxicity Category III), and is not a skin irritant (Toxicity Category IV) or sensitizer.
  • The reported dermal LD50 in rabbits is greater than 5000 mg/kg. It has been reported to be a skin sensitizer in guinea pigs, and an eye irritant in rabbits.
  • A subchronic toxicity study using rats resulted in changes in blood cell counts, and retarded growth at the high dose level.
  • People may be exposed to residues of linuron through the diet.
  • Tolerances or maximum residue limits have been established for linuron in many vegetables, grain crops, meat, milk, and other agricultural
  • Linuron dissipates principally by biotic processes such as microbial degradation.
  • In surface soils with adequate organic matter, the combined processes of adsorption and microbial degradation would limit linuron's potential to migrate to ground water.
  • Linuron is moderately persistent with an aerobic soil metabolism half-life ranging from 57 to 100 days.
  • Because linuron is sufficiently persistent and may be mobile under certain environmental
    conditions, it has the potential to impact ground water quality.
  • Linuron is not currently regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act, and water supply systems are not required to sample and analyze for it.
  • No Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) or drinking water health advisories have been established for linuron.
  • The potential for spray drift exists when linuron is applied by ground spray.
