Effects on Survival, Growth, and Reproduction of the Earthworm Eisenia fetida

The toxic effects of 2,2-dimethylpropane-1,3-diyl 2-ethylhexanoate (CAS 28510-23-8) on survival, growth, and reproduction of the earthwormEisenia fetidawere assessed during a test period of eight weeks based on the OECD Guidelines for Testing Chemicals, Test No. 222 (April 2004), the International Standards ISO 11268-2: 1998(E) and the BBA Guideline “Richtlinien für die Prüfung von Pflanzenschutzmitteln im Zulassungsverfahren“ Part VI, 2-2, January 1994.

 

Taking into account the survival, growth and reproduction rates of the exposed adult test organisms, the highest concentration of 2,2-dimethylpropane-1,3-diyl 2-ethylhexanoate (CAS 28510-23-8) without significant adverse effects on Eisenia fetida (NOEC) after the test period was determined to be the highest tested concentration of 1000 mg/kg dry soil.
