The effect of aging of the herbicides atrazine, terbuthylazine, 2,4-D, and mecoprop on their bioavailability to degrading microorganisms was studied in soil and aquifer sediment. 14C-ring-labeled herbicide (2.5 mg/kg) was added to sterilized soil or aquifer sediment and stored at 10 degrees C for up to 103 d before inoculation with either the atrazine and terbuthylazine-degrading Pseudomonas sp. strain ADP (atrazine-degrading Pseudomonas) or an enriched culture able to mineralize 2,4-D and… CONTINUE READING
