  1. For products 1–21, mixture toxicity predictions are based on all compounds including confidential additives for which data were available, while for products 22 and 23 predictions relate only to the a.s. and the additives identified in the product safety data sheets. Products indicated in italics were selected for the experimental testing
  2. S solvent based, W water based, F fungicide, I insecticide, # HAZ number of additives labelled as hazardous (or dangerous) to the environment on the product SDS
