Description of key information

In total 192 individual high quality NOEC/EC10 values (for 28 different species) are selected for the PNEC derivation, ranging from 3 mg B/kg for barley root elongation in Zwijnaarde soil (Van Laer et al., 2010) to 84.0 mg B/kg for wheat shoot length, canola shoot yield and western wheat grass root yield (Aquaterra, 1998).
A large number of papers were assessed from the literature, yet only a limited toxicity dataset could be created due to the poor quality of most of the data. References for studies with data on long term single-species toxicity tests resulting in NOEC/EC10 values from hydroponic/sand cultures for higher plants are presented as supporting information in Annex IV from the “Boron effects assessment in the terrestrial compartment” report prepared by Koen Oorts from ARCHE (2010).
