  • Abstract Laboratory incubation experiments were carried out to estimate the risk of enhanced carbofuran biodegradation in soil following previous treatments with various carbamate compounds. Two soils with different sensitivities to the enhanced degradation phenomenon were used. In the Montardon soil, prior treatments with 15 N -methylcarbamates led to an enhanced rate of [ 14 C-carbonyl]carbofuran degradation and an increase in the number of carbofuran-degrading microorganisms; prior treatment… CONTINUE READING
