  • Methoxyethyl mercury chloride is a white crystalline solid .
  • Methoxyethyl mercury chloride is a broad spectrum, cumulative and
    systemic alkoxyalkyl mercurial fungicide; a non-specific, non-selective
    metabolic inhibitor; and an unstable organic compound that decomposes to release inorganic mercury which is most persistant.
  • It is highly toxic to mammals and other non-target organisms.
  • It is used exclusively for seed treatment, however, it is believed to be no
    longer manufactured, or marketed for crop protection.
  • Formulations include various dusts and liquid preparations for slurry
    seed dressing and dips at concentrations of 2-60g Hg/kg of seeds and
    19g/lt respectively.
  • Methoxyethyl mercury chloride was applied to sugar cane and pineapple sets; against surface borne diseases of seed potatoes and flower bulbs and, as a seed dressing against seed borne diseases of cereals, legumes and root crops.
