Inhibited Degradation of Lambda-Cyhalothrin and Cypermethrin in High Copper Soils
Pesticides and heavy metals pollution in soil environment has become a serious problem in many countries including China. Two different types of soils were used in this study to assess whether high soil Cu concentrations may affect the degradation of Pys. The degradation rate of CPM and -CHT decreased with the addition of Cu to soils, indicating that Cu inhibited the degradation of CPM in soils. The results will provide more information about the potential ecological risk of chemicals on surface and groundwaters.
