Description of key information

Nitrifying bacteria are not inhibited by the test substance. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Long-term EC10 or NOEC for soil microorganisms:
1 000 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

Inhibition of nitrogen cycle in soils was investigates in a GLP test according to OECD guideline 216 (BASF, 2013). After 20 days the EC10 was estimated to be >1000 mg/kg soil (d.w.), related to the decrease of ammonia. Regarding the nitrate formation, no effects were detected as well.
