Description of key information

The acute effects of the test itemon the earthworm Eisenia fetidawere determined according to the OECD Guideline 207. The study was conducted with a limit test item concentration of 1000 mg/kg soil dry weight throughout 14 days.

No mortality as well as no noteworthy pathological symptoms or changes in the earthworm behaviour were observed at the limit test item concentrationof 1000 mg/kg soil dry weightafter 14 days ofexposure.Compared to the pooled control, the biomass of the earthworms at the limit test item concentration of 1000 mg/kg soil dry weight was not statistically significantly reducedat test end.

Consequently, the no observed effect concentration (NOEC) with respect to mortality, loss of biomass and other symptoms was determined to be at 1000 mg/kg soil dry weight.

The phytotoxicity of the test item to three terrestrial plant species was determined in a seedling emergence test over a period of 21 days according to OECD 208 (July 2006) . The test was conducted with the nominal concentration 1000 mg/kg soil dry weight (DW). Test systems were one monocotyledon, oats (Gramineae), and two dicotyledons, rape (Brassicaceae) and soybean (Leguminosae). The test item did not cause any effects > 25 % on the shoot height, the shoot fresh weight and the rate of emergence of the tested plant species at the tested concentration.
