The biodegradation of ring-labeled [(14)C]metalaxyl in six Indian soils was examined. The total recovery of radioactivity from soil was 100 +/- 6% of the applied radioactivity. Volatile organics and (14)CO(2) were detected at lower levels. This suggests that neither mineralization nor volatilization is a major route of metalaxyl dissipation. The most rapid degradation of metalaxyl was observed in Bannimantap soil, in which the half-life of metalaxyl was 36 days. An inverse relationship was… CONTINUE READING
