Two studies were available on the toxicity of CS2 for soil micro-organisms. In the key study, CS2 the 5-d EC50 in a clay loam soil was found to be 0.21 mg/kg and the 14-d EC50 was 2.1 mg/kg. In the suporting study, nitrification was completely inhibited at low concentration (10 mg/kg). No quantitative information can be obtained from the study.

one study CS2 was incubated with several soil types in closed flasks and
the effect on the rate of nitrification (formation of nitrate from
ammonium) was measured. CS2 appeared to inhibit nitrification.
to be a strong inhibitor of nitrification. The
5-d EC50 in a clay loam soil was found to be 0.21 mg/kg and the 14-d
EC50 was 2.1 mg/kg.
the suporting study, soil was fumigated with CS2. After inoculation with
fresh soil the oxygen consumption, the evolution of CS2 and
N-mineralisation were strongly enhanced, probably due to the killing of
micro-organisms. Nitrification was completely inhibited at low
concentration (10 mg/kg). No quantitative information can be obtained
from the study.
