Degradation of monensin on soils: influence of organic matter and water content

Natalia Yoshida, Mariano J. L. Castro and Alicia Fernandez Cirelli    

Abstract: Different kinds of pharmaceutical compounds (PhC) are used in veterinary medicine. Intensive bovine production involves the use of growth promoters that reach the environment through animal excreta. The most widely used growth promoter in Argentina is monensin, an ionophore antibiotic. In this work, the influence of soil organic matter and soil water content on the degradation of monensin was analysed. Results obtained show that both parameters are in direct relation with the degradation of monensin in soils.
