EFFECT OF ANTISEPTICS ON SOIL MICROFLORA DURING SOIL BURIAL TESTING,
ARMY FOREIGN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY CENTER WASHINGTON D C
Pagination or Media Count:
Specific ecological conditions are created in soil containing antiseptics, which determine the nature of the microflora which develop. Examination of soil surrounding buried antiseptic-treated wood has revealed that the toxicity of antiseptics is maximal during the first year, and decreases with time. The antiseptics FKhM-7751 and copper naphthenate are toxic for Chaetomiumelatum and selectively affect Opheostomacoeruleum, Acrostalagmus cinnabarinus, Cladosporium herbarum, Micelium sterilis. The continuous occurrence of the fungi Monotospora sp., Monilia sitophela, Fusarium sp. and bacteria Vibrio vulgaris in soil containing antiseptics, suggests that they are very resistant species.
