Toxicity to soil organisms

Instead of short term toxicity a long term test was carried out.

222

Under the conditions of this study, the test item did not induce mortality nor pathological symptoms to adult earthworms after an exposure to the test item concentration of 1000 mg test item/kg soil dry weight for 28 days. The biomass increase of the adult earthworms after 28 days was not statistically significantly reduced compared to the pooled control at the limit test item concentration of 1000 mg test item/kg soil dry weight. After eight weeks of exposure the earthworm reproduction was not statistically significantly reduced at the limit test item concentration of 1000 mg test item/kg soil dry weight.

Toxicity to terrestrial plants (Short term)

After 21 days no test item related phytotoxic effects were noted for all tested plant species at the limit concentration 1000 mg/kg DW.

No test item related effects > 9 % were observed on the shoot height, the shoot fresh weight and the rate of emergence of all tested plant species. The NOEC was determined for shoot height, shoot fresh weight and rate of emergence for all tested plant species. No statistically significant effects were observed.
