Any atrazine that is washed from the soil into streams and other bodies of water will stay there for a long time, because breakdown of the chemical is slow in rivers and lakes. It will also persist for a long time in groundwater. This is one reason why atrazine is commonly found in the water collected from drinking water wells in some agricultural regions.
Bioaugmentation is the addition of acclimated indigenous bacteria that can degrade the contaminant at accelerated rates. The bacteria are isolated from the heavily polluted soil in the laboratory through the enrichment process. The enrichment culture technique developed a mixed consortium of bacteria that are able to degrade the herbicide . A research was done by Dehghani and colleague confirmed that atrazine biodegradation was enhanced in Kavar corn field soil compared to the other soils that had not been exposed to the herbicide . Therefore, several applications of atrazine on soil.
Atrazine degrades in soil primarily by the action of microbes. The half-life of atrazine in soil.
