Oxytetracycline (OTC) is a major member of tetracyclines, which are widely administered to animals in confined feeding operations. To diminish the contamination of OTC in the environment, which results from the application of OTC-containing manure as fertilizer in agricultural lands, OTC degradation kinetics in manure and soil under laboratory aerobic conditions was investigated. OTC degradation kinetics was found to be described well by the previously developed availability-adjusted first… CONTINUE READING
