Key value for chemical safety assessment

Long-term EC10 or NOEC for soil microorganisms:
106 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

The EU RAR reports NOEC values from 106 to 3000 mg/kg. The 63 day experiments were carried out in a micro-ecosystem containing poplar litter (30% o.m) and the isopod Porcellio scaber Latr. Nitrification was found to be the most sensitive endpoint investigated in the micro-ecosystem test.
