Pesticide biodegradation in the subsurface terrestrial environment and impact on groundwater pollution

Pesticide biodegradation in the subsurface terrestrial environment and impact on groundwater pollution

Developments in Industrial Microbiology 31: 65-73

Metribuzin was used to demonstrate the kinetics and factors limiting pesticide biodegradation. Reduced rates of degradation were found immediately below the surface soil indicating that some pesticides may be very persistent in deeper vadose zone materials increasing their potential for movement to groundwater.
