OECD TG 217: Soil microorganisms: Carbon Transformation test

Standard soil with specific characteristics is mixed directly, or by an appropriate carrier,with different concentrations of the test substance in order to evaluate the effects on glucose induced respiration rate of the soil microorganims (measured for 12 consecutive hours). The deviation (%) in respiration rate respect to the untreated soil control is assessed at defined intervals until 28 days after the treatment or for a maximum of 100 days until a difference ≤ 25 % is obtained.

TEST SYSTEM
Agricultural loamy sand soil
A toxic reference substance is tested once a year to check the sensitivity of the soil microoorganisms.



STUDY DESIGN

For agrochemicals products 2 concentrations and 1 untreated control are tested
(3 replicates/concentration and for the control).
For substances other than agrochemicals, a dose-response test for ECx evaluation is carried out. It includes at least 5 concentrations and 1 untreated control (3 replicates/concentration and for the control).
                                                                
ENDPOINTS
% of deviation in soil respiration rate of treated soils respect to the untreated soil at the end of the test.
Study includes GLP management and reporting
