The potential to mineralize 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), mecoprop, isoproturon and terbuthylazine was studied in soil and aquifer chalk sampled at an agricultural field near Aalborg, Denmark. Laboratory microcosms were incubated for 258 days under aerobic conditions at 10 degrees C with soil and chalk from 0.15-4.45 m below the surface. The [ring-U-14C]-labeled herbicides were added to obtain a concentration of 6 micrograms kg-1 and mineralization was measured as evolved [14C]carbon… CONTINUE READING
