Environmental Profile
Algae: EC50 for Anabaena 4.06, Navicula 0.081, Selenastrum 0.05, Skeletonema 0.05 ppm.Bees:LD50 >100 µg/bee.Birds:Acute oral LD50 for chickens, bobwhite quail, and mallard ducks >500 mg/kg. In 1 mo feeding trials, chickens receiving 1000 mg/kg showed no ill-effects.Daphnia: LC50 297 ppm.Fish: LC50 (96 h) for rainbow trout 144, goldfish and fathead minnow >160, bluegill sunfish 112 mg/l.Other aquatic spp.: EC50 for Lemna 0.135 ppm. 

Environmental fate: 
Animals:The major metabolites in mammals were formed by N-demethylation of the substituted urea side-chain (D. M. Morton & D. G. Hoffman, J. Toxicol. Environ. Health, 1976, 1, 757-768).Soil:Some microbial breakdown occurs in soil, but this is not the predominant mode of degradation. Loss due to photodecomposition and volatilisation is negligible. Half-life in soil is considerably greater in soils with low moisture content, and in high organiPlant:In plants, the principal metabolic pathways involve N-demethylation and hydroxylation of the tert-butyl side-chain.
Transport Information
Signal Word:CAUTION; Hazard Class:III(Slightly hazardous)
