Ecotoxicological effects of the diphenyl ether herbicide fomesafen, applied alone or in combination with the adjuvant Agral 90 (mixture of polyethoxylated derivatives of nonylphenol), were assessed on planktonic communities in 18-m3 outdoor mesocosms during a nine-month study. Four mesocosms were treated with fomesafen only (nominal concentration: 40 microg/L), four were treated with the mixture fomesafen-Agral 90 (nominal concentration: 40 microg/L and 90 microg/L, respectively), and four were… CONTINUE READING
