In the present studies potential of microorganisms isolated from the cotton fields was explored for the bioremediation of fipronil contaminated soils. The cultures of microbes were grown in Luria broth as shake culture maintained at 28°C. After that Dorn's broth enrichment culture supplemented with fipronil was used and isolated two bacterial cultures viz. Paracoccus sp. and Gamma Proteobacteria. The performance of both bacteria was evaluated for degradation of fipronil in soil. Paracoccus sp… CONTINUE READING
