  • ABSTRACT Experiments were conducted to investigate the impact of commonly used herbicides and surfactants on the activity of acid phosphatase, β-glucosidase, arylsulfatase, β-glucosaminidase, and dehydrogenase, using two soils (silt loam and silty clay loam) from Mid-Missouri, USA. The surfactants used in this study were alkylphenol ethoxylate + alcohol ethoxylate (ACTIVATOR 90), polyethoxylate (Agri-Dex®) and a blend of ammonium sulfate, drift reduction/deposition polymers, and an antifoam… CONTINUE READING
