From: An efficient and pragmatic approach for regulatory aquatic mixture risk assessment of pesticides

Species Step in flowchart Risk assessment based on Risk and corresponding FOCUS step
Fish 1- > 2- > 3- > 4- > 5- > 6 Calculated mixture toxicity Acceptable, FOCUS step 4 (5 m spray buffer)
Daphnids 1- > 2- > 3- > 4- > 5 Single a.s. risk assessment Acceptable, FOCUS step 4 (10 m spray buffer + 10 m veg. strip)
Algae 1- > 2- > 3- > 4- > 5- > 6 Calculated mixture toxicity Not acceptable, FOCUS step 4 (all buffer mitigations)
Lemna 1- > 2- > 3- > 4- > 5- > 6 Calculated mixture toxicity Acceptable, FOCUS step 4 (10 m spray buffer + 10 m veg. strip)
