Abstract/Contents:"The persistence of metsulfuron-methyl in sandy loam and clay soil incubated at different temperatures and moistures contents was investigated under laboratory conditions using longbean (Vigna sesquipedalis L.) as bioassay species. A significant degradation of metsulfuron-methyl was observed in non-autoclaved soil rather than the autoclaved soil sample. At higher temperature, the degradation rate in non-autoclaved soil improved with increasing soil moisture content. In non-autoclaved sandy loam and clay soil, the half-life was reduced from 9.0 to 5.7 and from 11.2 to 4.6 days, respectively when moisture level of sandy loam increased from 20 to 80% field capacity at 35°C. In the autoclaved soil, herbicide residue seems to have been broken down by non-biological process. The rate of dissipation was slightly increased after the second application of the herbicide to non-autoclaved soils but not in autoclaved soil, indicating the importance of microorganisms in the breakdown process."
