Studies on the Survival Time of the Bovine Tubercle Bacillus in Soil, Soil and Dung, in Dung and on Grass, with Experiments on the Preliminary Treatment of Infected Organic Matter and the Cultivation of the Organism



Studies on the Survival Time of the Bovine Tubercle Bacillus in Soil, Soil and Dung, in Dung and on Grass, with Experiments on the Preliminary Treatment of Infected Organic Matter and the Cultivation of the Organism



Journal of Hygiene 33(1): 103-117



The author carried out experiments to ascertain (1) the length of survival of bovine tubercle bacilli in (a) manure, (b) manure and soil, (c) soil, and (d) on growing grass, and (2) the interval after infection before pastures become non-infective. It was found that the maximum period of survival of virulent tubercle bacilli in soil, soil and manure mixture, and manure was about six months.
