Elucidating veterinary antibiotic interactions with soil is important for assessing and mitigating possible environmental hazards. The objectives of this study were to investigate the effects of vegetative management, soil properties, and >1000 Da dissolved organic matter (DOM) on sulfamethazine (SMZ) behavior in soil. Sorption experiments were performed over a range of SMZ concentrations (2.5-50 μmol L) using samples from three soils (Armstrong, Huntington, and Menfro), each planted to one of… 

Assessing antibiotic sorption in soil: a literature review and new case studies on sulfonamides and macrolides

Different analytical approaches in assessing Kd of two major classes of veterinary antibiotics (sulfonamides and macrolides) are examined and the existing literature data is compared with experimental data obtained in the laboratory.

Veterinary Antibiotic Effects on Atrazine Degradation and Soil Microorganisms.

Investigation of the influence of two VAs on atrazine (ATZ) degradation, soil microbial enzymatic activity, and phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) markers found they had limited adverse effects on the microbial enzymes β-glucosidase and dehydrogenase in soils with and without manure.

Interaction of pig manure-derived dissolved organic matter with soil affects sorption of sulfadiazine, caffeine and atenolol pharmaceuticals

It is suggested that DOM concentration and its interaction with PhACs should be taken into consideration when assessing the environmental impact of land application of animal manure or irrigation with TWW.

Effects of veterinary antibiotics on atrazine degradation in soil

The presence of veterinary antibiotics (VAs) in manure applied to agricultural lands may decrease agrichemical degradation by inadvertently altering soil microbial communities or function. Reduced

Sulphamethazine in poultry manure changes carbon and nitrogen mineralisation in soils

ABSTRACT Antibiotics are newly emerging organic pollutants in manure, soil, vegetables and water. Animal manure application might be leading to the accumulation of antibiotics in the farmland.



Veterinary antibiotic sorption to agroforestry buffer, grass buffer and cropland soils

The potential of veterinary antibiotics (VAs) to impact human and environmental health requires the development and evaluation of land management practices that mitigate VA loss from manure-treated

Effects of Pig Slurry on the Sorption of Sulfonamide Antibiotics in Soil

The pH changes caused by manure amendment strongly affected ionisation status of the latter compounds, thus resulting in increased adsorption, which compensated the mobilizing effect of DOM, and it is suggested that the effect of manure be considered in test methods to determine the soil retention of pharmaceutical substances.

Sorption of three tetracyclines by several soils: assessing the role of pH and cation exchange.

A sorption model in which species-specific sorption coefficients normalized to pH-dependent CEC fit the data well across all soils except for a soil rich in gibbsite and high in AEC, which described most of the sorption observed as a function of pH for eight soils that varied in their mineralogy and pH (pH ranged from 4 to 8).

Dissipation of sulfamethazine and tetracycline in the root zone of grass and tree species.

Enhanced SMZ dissipation in soil planted to hybrid poplar suggests that incorporation of this plant species in VBS may mitigate deleterious effects of SMZ in the environment.

Sulfamethazine uptake by plants from manure-amended soil.

The results of this study raise potential human health concerns of consuming low levels of antibiotics from produce grown on manure-amended soils.

Antibiotic Effects on Microbial Community Characteristics in Soils under Conservation Management Practices

This work indicates that using VFS to mitigate VA loss from agroecosystems will not diminish important primary functions associated with VFS use in agriculture.

Effect of Dissolved Organic Matter in Treated Effluents on Sorption of Atrazine and Prometryn by Soils

The apparent enhanced transport of soil-applied atrazine following irrigation of treated effluents has been hypothesized to be from complexation of atrazine with effluent-borne dissolved organic

Reducing herbicides and veterinary antibiotics losses from agroecosystems using vegetative buffers.

This study has demonstrated that an optimized VBS design may achieve desired agrochemical reductions and minimize acreage removed from crop production.
