Key value for chemical safety assessment

Long-term EC10, LC10 or NOEC for soil macroorganisms:
1 000 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

In a GLP study on earthworm reproduction according to OECD 222 no adverse effects were observed. In a 56 day study adult earth worms of the species Eisenia fetida were exposed to the substance at nominal concentrations of 0 mg (control), 62.5 mg, 125 mg, 250 mg, 500 mg and 1000 mg/kg dry soil weight and an OC concentration of 5%. No mortality of adult worms was observed in the controls and at all replicates with test substance. The NOEC (28 days) body weight change of the adult worms was >= 1000 mg/kg soil dw. The reproduction, mean number of juveniles per test vessel 56 days after application was observed, the NOEC was >= 1000mg/kg soil dw.
