Description of key information

A weight of evidence (WoE) approach was utilised as an alternative to ‘long term testing on plants’ endpoint as it is believed that the proposed study alone is unlikely to produce reliable or repeatable toxicity results due to the rapid volatilisation of xylenes from soil. QSARs supported by relevant, reliable and robust existing data from experimental studies and from literature are used to fill this endpoint.

The lowest QSAR derived short-term and long-term effect values are:

14-day LC50 111 mg/kg dw m-xylene

28-day EC10 21.2 mg/kg dw m-xylene
