Title: Pathogens from farming: fate and transport in soil. interim report January 1994
Author: T.E. Irving
Document Type: Monograph
This Interim Report has been produced as pan of the R and D Contract N9 434, Pathogens from Farming: Fate and Transport in Soil, the overall objective of which is to study the incidence of pathogenic micro-organisms in soils receiving livestock wastes, and to investigate the persistence and mechanisms of transport of these organisms in the soil. The project has been divided into three stages, Stage I being a review of current understanding, Stage II being laboratory-based studies, and Stage III being field-based studies. This report is produced as part of Stage II, the specific objectives of which are to use laboratory-based systems to study the decay of pathogens in slurries, and to use model systems (soil cores) to study the persistence and transport of pathogens in soils.
