Information @ a Glance

General Information
  • Dithianon is used on a range of fruits and vegetables as a multi-site contact fungicide that inhibits spore germination.
  • The material balance from a preliminary study showed that dithianon was not metabolized to volatile compounds, including carbon dioxide.

Analysis Process

  • Dithianon was tested for genotoxicity in an adequate range of assays, both in vitro and in vivo. The majority of results were negative, including in vivo studies. There were some positive results in vitro that occurred only at cytotoxic doses.
  • A new, simple, and rapid spectrophotometric method for the microdetermination of dithianon, on the basis of its reaction with a dithiocarbamate, is described.
  • The electrochemical reduction behaviour of Dithianon has been studied by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and differential pulse polarography (DPP) in methanolic Britton-Robinson buffer of pH 2.0-12.0.


  • Fungicide/insecticide mixtures were applied at times and doses commonlyused in commercial orchard practice. Their effects on photosynthesis and dark respiration were evaluated in two seasons with respect to the potential stress they impose on an apple tree using cv. ‘Elstar’. The mixtures included the fungicides mancozeb, flusilazol and dithianon, and the insecticides oxydemeton-methyl or pirimicarb.
  • Seven pesticide including dithianon application strategies were investigated to control apple scab (Venturia inaequalis) and powdery mildew (Podosphaera leucotricha) and, at the same time, fulfil the new quality standards implemented by some German retailers.


  • The market for agrichemicals to all African nations was estimated to be between US$500 million and US$1 billion. Sales to sub-Saharan Africa were  perhaps 50 percent of total African sales or $250 to $500 million.
  • At least 1,900 metric tons of banned, canceled, or voluntarily suspended pesticides manufactured in the United States were exported.
  • The largest agrichemical markets were North America with 29 percent of the global market, Western Europe with 27 pe1ent, and Japan with 14 percert.
