Test substance had no effect on the size of the coleoptile.

Validity criteria fulfilled:
not specified
Conclusions:
The test substance benzonitrile had no effects on the size of the coleoptile of Avena sp. at a concentration of 1 x 10^-4 M in a 24 h test.
Executive summary:

A 24-h test was conducted using Avena sp. to determine potential phytotoxic effects of the test substance benzonitrile. The laboratory experiments were conducted in petri dishes, the test substance was applied on the coleoptile of Avena sp. plants at a concentration of 1 x 10^-4 M.

Benzonitrile had no effects on the size of the coleoptile of Avena sp. at this concentration after 24 h.
