Description of key information

Valid acute toxicity results are available on earthworms showing an 14d-LC50 of 544 mg/kg soil dw.

As no high adsorption or persistency is expected in soils, long term testing does not appear scientifically necessary.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Short-term EC50 or LC50 for soil macroorganisms:
544 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

Acute toxicity results are available on earthworm according to standard guideline (OECD 207) and GLP. As the registered substance doesn't have a strong adsorbtion coefficient and is readily biodegradable in water, it is not expected to be persistent in soil (neither its degradation products), and therefore long term testing according to Annex X does not appear scientifically necessary.
