Two studies of toxicity of benoxacor on birds are available. No mortality was observed during the testing period in either study. The highest dose tested was 2150 mg/kg bw for mallard duck (Anas platyrhynchos).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The acute toxicity of the substance to birds was investigated in two guideline-conform and GLP-compliant studies. Tested animals received a single oral dose of the test substance by gavage and were observed over a period of 15 and 21 days, respectively. No mortality occurred during the two tests and the acute LC50 value was found to be greater than 2150 mg/kg, which was the highest applied dose in the test with mallard duck. The results above for two species of birds do not lead to classification.
