Persistence of phorate in different soils with and without amendments and its degradation by a Pseudomonas sp

Persistence of phorate in different soils with and without amendments and its degradation by a Pseudomonas sp

Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology 38(3): 381-387

The dissipation of phorate from soils showed a definite treatment effect and phorate sulfoxide was the major metabolite formed. In red, black and alluvial soils, ammonium sulfate retarded degradation while groundnut oil cake hastened it. This did not occur in laterite soil, however. Variations in the degradation rates correlated with the populations of a fluorescent Pseudomonas sp.
