Environmental Fate TERRESTRIAL FATE: SWEP WAS INCUBATED @ 28 DEG C WITH NIXON SANDY LOAM (PH 5.5). AFTER 40 DAYS, SOME SWEP REMAINED INTACT; BUT TLC INDICATED THAT A PORTION WAS TRANSFORMED TO A VARIETY OF PRODUCTS. HERBICIDAL CARBAMATES ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT THEY ARE OF LOW MAMMALIAN TOXICITY, HAVE RELATIVELY SHORT RESIDUAL LIFE IN SOIL, & ARE READILY DEGRADED BY NONTARGET ORGANISMS /METHYLCARBAMATES FROM THE DATA PRESENTED IN REVIEW, IT APPEARS THAT MOST, IF NOT ALL, OF KNOWN CARBAMATE METABOLITES ARE LESS TOXIC TO THE ENVIRONMENT THAN PARENT MOLECULES. CARBAMATE HERBICIDES
