In a --- day acute toxicity study, earthworms (species) were exposed to {test chemical} at {0, x1, x2, x3, xn mg a.i./kg dry weight of soil/artificial substrate}. The reference chemical used was ---- (name) at x mg a.i./kg dw of the soil/substrate. The experiment was carried out in accordance with --- {specify the guideline followed}. The --- day LC50 was --- mg a.i./kg dw of soil/substrate. The --- day EC50 was --- mg a.i./kg dw of soil/substrate. The --- day NOEC, based on [indicate parameter used] was x mg a.i./kg dw of soil/substrate. The LOEC, based on [indicate parameter used] was x mg a.i./kg dw of soil/substrate. The {a.i. or EUP} is considered to be {non-toxic/toxic} to earthworms up to/above a concentration of {X} mg a.i./kg dw of soil/substrate.

 

[Briefly describe the mortality and other toxic effects that were observed. If toxicity or abnormalities were not observed, state that there were no compound related toxicity effects.]

 

This study is classified as [enter acceptability classification e.g. acceptable/unacceptable/supplementary) and {satisfies/does not satisfy} the guideline requirements for an acute toxicity study with earthworms [provide the study code].
