Clothianidin is authorized for spray, dust, soil drench (for uptake via plant roots), injectable liquid (into tree limbs and trunks, sugar cane stalks etc. per North -100,000 Dakota, seeds Oregon, and (-1 kg by weight of raw seeds). Lethal and Sublethal Toxicity of Thiamethoxam and Clothianidin Commercial Formulations to Soil Invertebrates in a Natural Soil. Attempts to collect canola pollen by hand were challenged by contamination by flower debris; therefore, sampling was limited to the more bee‐relevant canola nectar. Fourteen of the sites had been treated with thiamethoxam, a product that can be metabolized to clothianidin 17, primarily as soybean treatment. It is very persisent in soil and water. tianbo.xu@bayer.com, Bayer CropScience, Monheim am Rhein, Germany. Extraction was repeated again with a fresh portion of solvent. Conclusions These findings show that small clusters of resistance to clothianidin may exist around farmlands where agricultural neonicotinoids are being used. All soil extracts were analyzed for clothianidin using an ultra performance liquid chromatograph with an exact‐mass quadrupole time of flight mass spectrometer using a Waters Model XEVO G2 QTOF mass spectrometer operating in negative electron spray ionization mode coupled with Waters H‐Class UPLC system (Water). Clothianidin, (E)‐1‐ (2‐chloro‐1,3‐thiazol‐5‐ylmethyl)‐3‐methyl‐2‐nitroguanidine (CAS no. Comparison of uptake, translocation and accumulation of several neonicotinoids in komatsuna (Brassica rapa var. Soil samples from each subplot in canola fields were combined into labeled, plastic bags; placed in a freezer on a trailer with portable power generator; and then transferred by freezer trucks to the sample processing facility. ... Wyoming are requesting the The State Departments commercial application of Agriculture in of Colorado, 60g a.i. Moreover, TZMU was detected at 8 sites at concentrations greater than LOD but less than LOQ (Table 1; Supplemental Data, Table S12). After an appropriate number of sample tips were filled with pollen, the tips were cut and the pollen was emptied into amber glass 40‐mL vials. Elle est interdite sur certaines cultures en Europe avec deux autres principes actifs (imidaclopride et thiaméthoxame) à partir du 1er décembre 20132, en raison de leur probable responsabilité dans la mortalité des abeilles et autres pollinis… An aliquot of the sample supernatant was filtered through a Whatman 0.2‐μm nylon membrane syringe filter or Whatman 0.7‐μm glass fiber membrane syringe filter directly into an autosampler vial. Of the 50 sites, 45 had soil concentrations below the theoretical concentration of 12.6 ng/g expected from a single planting of Poncho 500 corn seed (0.5 mg clothianidin per seed), and all sites had soil concentrations below the theoretical concentration of 31.5 ng/g for a single planting of Poncho 1250 (1.25 mg clothianidin per seed). The sample was shaken for 1 min then centrifuged at 2000 rpm for 5 min. After collecting, samples were placed in a cooler on ice and stored chilled. The objective of the present study was to conduct a large‐scale assessment of clothianidin residues in the United States and Canada and to quantify clothianidin residues in bee‐relevant crop matrices. Most sites had 2 yr to 3 yr of clothianidin‐treated seed use history prior to the sampling year, and 3 sites had a total of 4 yr of clothianidin‐treated seed use history prior to the sampling year. At each site, after the seed bed was prepared but prior to seeding, soil cores of 4.8 cm to 5.0 cm diameter were collected with a Wacker Hammer to a depth of 50 cm to determine the initial soil concentration (in 2000) or the concentration remaining from the previous application (all other years). Of these 61 samples, all but 7 exceeded the LOD of 0.3 ng/g, with an average plant‐bioavailable concentration of 1.0 ng/g, and a 90th percentile concentration of 2.1 ng/g. Each subplot was then divided into 8 separate sampling squares, which measured approximately 7.6 m by 7.6 m. Subplots were located no closer than 30 m from each other and were located no closer than 30 m to the edge of the field. This included descriptive statistics, including minimum, maximum, mean, frequency of detection, 95% upper confidence limit on the mean, and percentiles of clothianidin residues in soil, as well as correlation analysis between soil residues and environmental variables. Soil samples were collected from the center of the row between plants to avoid collecting treated seeds. The present study is the first large‐scale study to include paired measurements of clothianidin in pollen, nectar, and soil in production agricultural fields after multiple years of documented seed treatment use in both corn and canola. Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. The plateau concentrations were between 40 ng/g to 50 ng/g for the 3 sites (Figure 4), whereas the theoretical concentration for an application rate of 150 g/ha was 45 ng/g (assuming a soil depth of 30 cm; bulk density of 1.1 g/cm3). Recovery of clothianidin from soil sites averaged 96 ± 3% (n = 6) at canola sites and 91 ± 5% (n = 12) at corn sites; recovery of clothianidin, TZNG, and TZMU from corn pollen averaged 96 ± 8%, 102 ± 17%, and 91 ± 7% (n = 9), respectively; and recovery of clothianidin, TZNG, and TZMU from canola nectar averaged 91 ± 9%, 100 ± 5%, and 88 ± 3% (n = 6), respectively. The upper confidence limit on the mean of the soil data was calculated using ProUCL 5.0 23. This is especially true for studies conducted for longer than 120 d, which was often the case for studies conducted prior to 2008. SigmaPlot Ver 12.5 22 was used to develop probability plots and conduct regression analyses. A 10.0‐mL aliquot of HPLC‐grade water was added and shaken for 1 min; a further10.0 mL pesticide‐grade acetonitrile was added and shaken 1 min; 1.0 g NaCl and 2.0 g MgSO4 (anhydrous) was added and shaken again for 1 min. For corn pollen and canola nectar, analytical methods were developed to determine the residues of clothianidin and its metabolites, N‐(2‐chlorothiazol‐5‐ylmethyl)‐N′‐nitroguanidine (TZNG; desmethyl clothianidin; CAS #135018‐15‐4) and N‐(2‐chlorothiazol‐5‐ylmethyl)‐N′‐methylurea (TZMU; clothianidin urea; CAS #634192‐72‐6). Imidacloprid is effective against sucking insects, some chewing insects, soil ... 2009, the German Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety decided to continue to suspend authorization for clothianidin use on corn. The average clothianidin residue in corn pollen (0.5 × LOD used for the nondetect) was 1.8 ng/g, with a 90th percentile concentration of 5.4 ng/g. The samples were kept frozen after they were received at the analytical facility until they were extracted and analyzed. The average concentration across the 50 sites was 7.0 ± 4.2 ng/g, with a 90th percentile concentration of 13.5 ng/g (Table 1; Supplemental Data, Table S7). Each field was planted in canola treated with clothianidin, except for 2 sites that used thiamethoxam‐treated seeds in the sampling year of 2012 and 2013. Degradation appeared to be the primary dissipation pathway in soil, because leaching was minimal. This approach was designed to allow an assessment of residues that could be taken up from the soil and translocated to relevant plant matrices (corn pollen and canola nectar). For plant‐bioavailable fraction measurements, a 20‐g soil sample was weighed into a 50‐mL polypropylene centrifuge tube and extracted with 25.0 mL of 0.01 M CaCl2. The water‐extractable (i.e., plant‐bioavailable) clothianidin residues in soil were only 10% of total residues. The concentrations in pollen and nectar showed no increase in clothianidin when compared with the years of clothianidin use in these fields or the concentration of clothianidin in the soil. Therefore, although measurable pesticide residues may remain in the soil the following growing season, they are likely strongly bound to the soil and largely not readily available for uptake by crops. The use of clothianidin as a seed treatment in corn and canola has gained wide acceptance in an effort to protect these crops against the major insect pests of concern to growers, such as the corn rootworm and European corn borer in corn and the flea beetle in canola 1. For each sampling interval, control and treated samples from each soil layer from a subplot were individually homogenized using a Hammer mill prior to collecting an aliquot for analysis. An 8.0‐mL aliquot of acetonitrile layer was pipetted into a 10‐mL glass conical glass tube, and the extract was brought to dryness using a gentle stream of nitrogen and a water bath at 70 °C. Neonicotinoid insecticide removal by prairie strips in row-cropped watersheds with historical seed coating use. The average soil concentration for the 50 corn sites in the present study was 7.0 ng/g, and therefore similar to the predicted concentration from a single application of clothianidin at the lowest application rate for corn (Figure 2A). A 95/95 upper tolerance limit indicates that 95% of the population is contained within the limit with 95% confidence. Organic matter varied considerably, from 0.85% to 6.1%, and pH (in water) ranged from 4.8 to 8.1. They are also used for other purposes, including killing insects in homes, controlling fleas on pets, and protecting trees from invasive insects such as the Emerald Ash borer. Results of the 7‐yr experiment 19 indicated that clothianidin residues remained primarily in the top 30 cm of the soil column (Supplemental Data, Table S11) with only a few detections in the deeper soil layers, and that significant dissipation was observed after each year of use. The Supplemental Data are available on the Wiley Online Library at DOI: 10.1002/etc.3281.

The assumptions of significant accumulation of neonicotinoids in soil are based on studies conducted under artificial conditions (laboratory tests) or under nonagricultural conditions (bare soil field tests). Therefore, nectar residues are likely influenced only by the application that occurred in the sampling year. Corn tassels were cut from plants located adjacent to the soil sampling location within each subplot and were placed within doubled pollen sampling paper bags (Canvasback #T514; Seedburo Equipment), segregated by subplot. A seeding rate of 180 kg seeds/ha was used in all trials. Clothianidin is an insecticide approved for use in the EU. For soil samples, clothianidin was the only analyte tested. Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Clothianidin may be used as a reference standard for the analysis of the analyte in agricultural samples using dual-labeled time-resolved fluoro-immunoassay (TRFIA), followed by gas chromatography (GC). Clothianidin was widely used for seed treatment or foliar spraying to control a variety of insect pests, particularly the sucking insects in Mid-south United States. Sufficient numbers of flowers around each soil core were collected and transported to a sample processing station at the edge of the field. The probability plots can be used for direct comparison with the dataset's quantiles; comparison with some theoretical distribution (e.g., normal, lognormal, or gamma) in a probability plot; or comparison with the distribution of some other observed dataset in a quantile–quantile plot. The limit of detection (LOD) and the limit of quantitation (LOQ) for each analyte in corn pollen were 0.25 ng/g and 1 ng/g, respectively. The limited number of years of application in canola fields (≤4) and complexity of the crop rotations with canola does not allow for the same evaluation, but a similar behavior is expected. Soil samples from each subplot in corn fields were combined into labeled, plastic bags; placed in a cooler on wet ice; and shipped overnight to the sample processing facility. The aim of the present study was to determine if the use of neonicotinoids in agricultural pest management could drive resistance to clothianidin—a neonicotinoid recently prequalified by WHO for indoor residual spraying. At the processing station, the flower petals were extracted carefully from the flower for easier access to the nectar droplet located at the base of the sepals. Seeds and soil samples were extracted with microwave extraction using a water/acetonitrile mixture analyzed by high performance liquid chromatography using MS/MS detection in the multiple reaction monitoring mode using a method developed and validated by Sommer 20 and Nuesslein 21 (see Supplemental Data). A set of soil field recovery samples included 3 untreated control and 6 samples fortified with clothianidin at 2 levels: 5 ng/g and 50 ng/g. A critical aspect of accurately predicting pesticide fate in soils is understanding that the processes of degradation and sorption occur concurrently. Concentrations of the metabolites TZNG and MNG were below the LOQ for all samples in all trials. Aux doses de toxicité subaiguës, il modifie le comportement de l'abeille. The process of sorption, often termed time‐dependent sorption, could be an increased binding of a chemical into interstitial pores or organic soil matrix over time 8. There are three main neonicotinoids currently approved for agricultural use in Canada: imidacloprid, clothianidin, and thiamethoxam. Upper‐bound statistics—including upper tolerance limits, upper prediction limits, and upper percentiles—were also calculated in ProUCL 5.0 23. It is moderately soluble and volatile but has a high potential for leaching to groundwater. The results showed that clothianidin was stable in soil, nectar, and pollen samples, and TZNG and TZMU were stable in nectar and pollen samples. The present study was conducted under USEPA good laboratory practices 16. The experimentally defined plant‐bioavailable concentration (0.01 M CaCl2 extractable) of clothianidin was determined in all replicate soil samples where total residues exceeded the LOQ of 5 ng/g (n = 61). The extraction procedures, however, will typically remove residues from the soil, which are not dissolved in the water phase of the soil and therefore are not easily available for uptake to plants. The remaining sites exceeded the LOD (0.25 ng/g), with 1 nondetect. After collection, samples were frozen immediately and shipped in freezer trucks to the analytical facility for residue analysis. The average number of years was 4.7. For the sites that had the longest clothianidin use histories, such as site 37 (10 yr) and site 45 (11 yr), the clothianidin soil residues were only 16.2 ng/g and 8.9 ng/g (Figure 2A; Supplemental Data, Table S3), respectively. In some instances, it was necessary to retain the corn tassels overnight and repeat the process of shaking the tassels the following morning to give more time for the pollen to dehisce from the anthers and provide an adequate sample volume. The proposal published on Wednesday would end outdoor agricultural and turf uses for clothianidin, and all outdoor agricultural and ornamental uses for thiamethoxam in the next three to five years. Using WHO tube tests and CDC bottle bioassays, we tested the recommended diagnostic doses of clothianidin against field-collected populations using two laboratory strains as susceptible controls. The decreasing microbial activity often leads to slower degradation and longer half‐life determinations. In France, several laws restrict the use of these substances (particularly in agriculture). In addition, soil residues were not significantly correlated with locations (latitude), tillage practices, and soil chemistry parameters, including cation exchange capacity and pH. This was the result of crop rotation practices and difficulties in finding farmers with a documented long history of clothianidin use and a willingness to participate. By contrast, An. Contact Technical Service for further support. Sites were located in Saskatchewan (17 sites), Alberta (7 sites), and Manitoba (3 sites; Figure 1), Canada. The plots ranged in size from approximately 300 m2 to 500 m2. Sublethal exposure to neonicotinoids and related side effects on insect pollinators: honeybees, bumblebees, and solitary bees. Increased mortality [articles in support: 30, 31-39] [articles in disagreement: 34, 40, 41, 42] 2. Other pollinator populations have been recorded declines as well. Environmental Science and Pollution Research. Pollen samples from each subplot were placed into separate vials, generating 1 pollen sample from each subplot per site. Average canola nectar concentrations were 0.6 ng/g and not correlated to use history or soil concentrations. C'est aussi le principal métabolite toxique du thiamétoxame (Syngenta). The nectar droplet was collected from the anther base with a precision‐bore glass micro‐capillary tube using capillary action.

Uptake and toxicity of clothianidin to monarch butterflies from milkweed consumption. © 2015 The Authors. Even considering that these were typically Poncho 250 treatments, these low residues show that concentrations do not continue to increase over long periods of use. Enter multiple addresses on separate lines or separate them with commas. Each field had documented previous use history of clothianidin‐treated seeds (Supplemental Data, Table S6). Impacts of chronic sublethal exposure to clothianidin on winter honeybees, http://www5.statcan.gc.ca/cansim/pick‐choisir?lang=eng&p2=33&id=0040213, http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/drought/201206, http://www2.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2015‐03/documents/proucl_v5.0_tech.pdf, http://www2.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2015‐08/documents/g9s‐final.pdf. Fortification recovery results for corn pollen were 88 ± 10%, 82 ± 5.2%, and 85 ± 11% (n = 6) for clothianidin, TZNG, and TZMU, respectively. This re-evaluation assessed the potential risk to pollinators in light of international updates to the pollinator risk assessment framework. The present study will also shed new light on the fate and plant‐bioavailability of clothianidin residues in soil under realistic agricultural production conditions. 210889‐92‐5), is a nitroguanidine neonicotinoid pesticide used in many crops to control various sucking and chewing insects. The special review for both these neonics was launched in 2016 when Health Canada made a similar announcement proposing a three-year phase out of the other main neonic —imidacloprid. They are primarily used in the agricultural sector but also in forestry, horticulture, amenity areas and in home gardens. The average plant‐bioavailable fraction (plant bioavailable residue/total residue) expressed as a percentage was 10% (Supplemental Data, Table S8). But the most commonly used agricultural neonicotinoids (imidacloprid, clothianidin, and thiamethoxam) each have a GUS leaching potential index greater than 3.7. . Detailed chromatography and mass spectrometry parameters are provided in the Supplemental Data. In support of the soil accumulation aspects of the present North American study, we also describe a field accumulation study conducted at 3 locations in Europe, evaluating clothianidin residues in soil following annual applications for 7 yr in fields planted each year with winter wheat. To protect consumers from risks related to clothianidin residue, the … A set of 21 samples for both nectar and pollen field recovery samples included 3 untreated control and 18 samples fortified with clothianidin and TZNG and TZMU at 2 levels: 2 ng/g and 10 ng/g. Canola‐harvested acreage data obtained from Statistics Canada 15 were used in determining the number of sites in Western Canada canola production areas. Clay content ranged between 10% and 42%, sand content ranged from 4% to 66%, and silt content was 18% to 64%. Of these 23 samples, the concentration of residues was greater than the LOD (0.3 ng/g) in all but 6, with an average concentration of 0.6 ng/g, and the 90th percentile concentration being 1.3 ng/g (Supplemental Data, Table S10). Clothianidin has a broad spectrum of activity, particularly against sucking insects such as aphids, leaf hoppers, thrips and white flies. A total of 1,265 female An. The average plant‐bioavailable concentration was 6% of the total extractable concentration, with a range of 2% to 11% with 1 exception with a value of 24% (total residue of 6.6 ng/g and plant‐bioavailable 1.6 ng/g [
