Additional information

Short term toxicity to soil macroorganisms:

In a screening (filter-paper) test, Roberts & Dorough (1984) revealed an LC50 (48h) for Eisenia fetida of 1 - 10 µg/cm2.

Furthermore, Nematodes in peat were killed by application of formalin (37 % formaldehyde solution) at 179 ml/m2 (Lockhart, 1972).
