A laboratory incubation experiment was set up to determine the effects of atrazine herbicide on the size and activity of the soil microbial biomass. This experiment was of a factorial design (0, 5, and 50 μg g−1 soil of non-labelled atrazine and 6.6×103 Bq g−1 soil of 14C-labelled atrazine) x (0, 20, and 100 μg g−1 soil of urea-N) x (pasture or arable soil with a previous history of atrazine application). Microbial biomass, measured by substrate-induced respiration and the fumigation-incubation… CONTINUE READING
