Description of key information

No toxicity to terrestrial plant studies were available for Dowfax 2A1.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The chronic soil toxicity of Dowfax 2A1 was assessed in an 8 -week study with the earthworm (Eisenia fetida). The results from this toxicity study indicated that there is low concern for toxicity to soil organisms from Dow fax 2A1 as effects on earthworm reproduction (juvenile production) were only noted at 1000 mg/kg soil dw; thus the NOEC for Dowfax 2A1 was 566 mg/kg dw in the chronic earthworm toxicity study. This result indicates no need for further toxicity testing in the terrestrial environment.
