Results and discussion

Effect concentrations
Remarks on result:
other: The toxicity limit of melamine (within Melafslik) to beans and peas is ca. 170 mg melamine per kg soil.

Any other information on results incl. tables

The toxicity limit of Melafslik added to standard soil for germinating seeds is around 6 % (by weight).

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Validity criteria fulfilled:
no
Conclusions:
The toxicity limit of melamine (within Melafslik) to beans and peas is ca. 170 mg melamine per kg soil.


(a value that can not be entered in the field above)added to standard soil is around 6 % (by weight). The administered Melafslik contained about 2.8 % Melamine.
Executive summary:

The toxicity limit of Melafslik added to standard soil is around 6 % (by weight); corresponding to ca. 170 mg melamine per kg soil, as Melafslik contained about 2.8 % melamine.

When applying Melafslik as a fertilizer (annualy about 7 ppm to the bottom), this does not harm higher plants.
