Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential cytotoxic and mutagenic effects of Alloxydim sodium which is an cyclohexanedione herbicide using two standard assays. The cytotoxic effects of this pesticide were determined in the Allium cepa test. Onion seeds were germinated and exposed to pesticides for 24, 48 and 72 hours. The cytotoxicity induced by each pesticide concentration was compared with the value for the negative control using the Dunnet-t test, 2 sided.
