Biodegradation of soil-applied endosulfan in the presence of a biosurfactant


Journal of Environmental Science and Health Part B, Pesticides, Food Contaminants, and Agricultural Wastes 34(5): 793-803
Biodegradation of soil-applied endosulfan in the presence of a biosurfactant
A study was carried out to determine the effects of biosurfactants on the degradation of chlorinated pesticides. Biodegradation of endosulfan isomers by bacterial coculture in soil-applied and flask-coated systems was studied. The degradation of endosulfan in the soil-applied form was 20-30% slower than in the flask-coated system. Addition of a biosurfactant (surfactin), isolated from Bacillus subtilis MTCC 1427, enhanced the rate of biodegradation by 30-45% in both the systems.
