Degradation of isoproturon in soil in relation to changes of microbial biomass and activity in small-scale laboratory and outdoor studies


, : Degradation of isoproturon in soil in relation to changes of microbial biomass and activity in small-scale laboratory and outdoor studies. International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry 59(2-4): 123-132

The soil degradation of isoproturon under standardized laboratory conditions was compared to that carried out in an outdoor experiment using lysimeters. After application of 14C-labelled formulated isoproturon (1.5 kg A.I./ha), radiochemical analysis, as well as microbial investigations, were performed to relate changes in soil microbial biomass to its capability of degrading isoproturon.
