Description of key information

The chronic toxicity of the substance to terrestrial plants was tested according to OECD Guideline 208 (Terrestrial Plants Test: Seedling Emergence and Seedling Growth Test). Five to seven different test item concentrations per species were tested against a solvent control (acetone) with each of the six plant species. No significant effect on seedling emergence or mortality was observed for any of the six test species. Effects were observed for shoot length and fresh weight. Shoot length and shoot fresh weight of B. napus seedlings were significantly reduced at concentrations of 15.6 and 62.5 mg/kg soil dw, respectively. Hence, B. napus was the most sensitive species with regard to shoot length and weight.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Long-term EC10, LC10 or NOEC for terrestrial plants:
7.8 mg/kg soil dw
