Environmental Profile
Ecotoxicology: 
Algae:50 (96 h) 0.248 /l; (96 h) 0.125 /l.Bees:Not hazardous to bees when used as directed.Birds:Acute oral 50 for mallard ducks 136 /kg. Dietary 50 (5 d) for mallard ducks 10 936, pheasants >5000 / diet.Daphnia:50 (48 h) 0.055/l.Fish:50 (96 h) for bluegill sunfish 0.14, rainbow trout 0.09, mirror carp 0.37-0.57 /l. 

Environmental fate: 
Soil:In damp soil, degradation and evaporation of the bulk of the substance occurs within 3 weeks at 18-20 °C soil temperature, 4 weeks at 6-12 °C, and 8 weeks at 0-6 °C. At the lower temperatures, leaching is more significant and is dependent on soil moisture
