Description of key information

Diuron is not readily biodegradable according to the criteria of the test.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The biological degradation of Diuron at the end of the 28 day test was 0% based on BOD, therefore no biodegradation of Diuron was observed under aerobic conditions (Müller, 1991).
