An MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) contans only safety information. It would be most unusual to see instructions for usage on an MSDS.
This is very true, but the MSDS for a product does list (usually) any environmental toxicity levels. These are always left off any product labeling.
And, crsublette, you are correct that MSDS do not contain usage instructions AND a MSDS will provide no benefit to those that do not read usage instructions.
However, for those pondkeepers that do read instructions (the majority I will venture) a product MSDS can inform them of exactly what they are putting into their ponds and what the effects may be on other aquatic organisms. (Remember I am talking about eco-ponds). They may decide to avail themselves of other treatment options.
