7. Provide supplemental information here

These studies were conducted with formulated end use product as an emulsion in water at 20 g ai/L or 2.0% w/w. This product has a relatively low concentration of active ingredient and a large concentrations of organic compounds acting as emulsifiers. The reported Japanese quail endpoint was extrapolated from the data in which the highest test concentration was 200 mg ai/kg bw and had a 40% mortality rate. In terms of formulated product, this LD50 (226 mg ai/kg) is equivalent to 11,300 mg form/kg bw. The algal EC50 (0.0271 mg ai/L) is equivalent to 1.36 mg form/L.
