||Alachlor is the active ingredient of the herbicide Lasso. The studies were carried out by the standardised incorporation method on 5 standard histidine-autotrophic strains of Salmonella. The preparation was tested in parallel series of experiments with and without metabolic activation at 8, 20, 40 and 100µg/Petri dish. Alachlor is a directly acting bacterial mutagen. It is now necessary to evaluate its mutagenicity in mammals.
