Description of key information

Toxicity to soil macroorganisms

An experimental study with Eisenia fetida predicted an EC10 of 11.2 mg/kg soil dw, after 56 d exposure to the test item

Toxicity to terrestrial arthropods

In experimental studies with Folsomia candida an EC50 (28 d) of 909.9 mg/kg dw was determined.

Toxicity to terrestrial plants

After 14 d exposure with the test item EC50 values of 353 mg/kg (Avena sativa) and 128 mg/kg (Latuca sativa) were obtained.

Toxicity to soil microorganisms

Nitrifying bacteria are not inhibited by the test substance.

Toxicity to birds

For reasons of animal welfare, no study on toxicity to birds is performed. Mammalian toxicity data are considered in detail for human health protection and showed no hint for adverse effects. Therefore, and due to the non bioaccumulative potential of MDA no toxicity to birds is expected either
