Effect of organic solvent (methanol) on the adsorption and movement of carbofuran on three soils of divergent texture

, : Effect of organic solvent (methanol) on the adsorption and movement of carbofuran on three soils of divergent texture. Journal of the Indian Society of Soil Science 45(1): 67-73

Adsorption and movement of carbofuran in three different types (loam, silt clay loam, sandy loam) of soils in methanol-water mixtures at various 'fs' (volume fraction of the cosolvent) values were studied by using batch shake and soil TLC technique, respectively. Higher adsorption and lower movement of carbofuran was observed in loam soil followed by silt clay loam and sandy loam soils. This was corroborated with Freundlich constants Km and Sm values.
