The effect of propionic acid on germination
of Lactuca sativa seeds was investigated. The EC50 for inhibition of
lettuce seed germination was 125.8 mg/L. The pH measured at the EC50
concentration was 5.75. [Reynolds, 1975].
The test substance is not supposed to be
directly applied to soil. Further, the substance is readily
biodegradable. For substances being considered as "readily“, it can be
assumed that they will be completely biologically degraded within the
STP process. Hence, an indirect exposure to soil via sewage sludge
transfer is unlikely.
