A Microcosm Study of Endosulfan Degradation and its Short-Term Effect on pH and Biological Parameters of Cotton Zones Soils of Burkina Faso
Journal of Environmental Science and Technology,
2009, 2(1), 12-21.
We studied under microcosm conditions the degradation
of endosulfan and its effect on soil microbial respiration, soil microbial
population and pH evolution in three major soil types of Burkina Faso.
Results indicated that the recommended treatment dose of endosulfan (3
Î¼g g-1) did not affect soil pH. But when the dose was
6 Î¼g g-1, a stimulation of the respiratory activity of
the soils during the first five days and a disturbance of the pH were
observed. There were no significant impact of endosulfan at 3 and 6 Î¼g
g-1 of soil in the total bacterial number. After 5 days of
incubation the degradation rate of endosulfan with initial concentration
of 3 Î¼g g-1 were 50, 56.5 and 83.5% in the soil from Boni,
Farakoba and Kaibo, respectively. But when the initial concentration of
endosulfan was 6 Î¼g g-1, the figures were 94.6, 79.6 and
20.4%, respectively. Endosulfan degradation in these three soils led to
a production of endosulfan-sulphate.
