Effects of a wood-based biochar on the leaching of pesticides chlorpyrifos, diuron, glyphosate and MCPA.


PMID 28086139

Abstract

We studied the ability of a wood-based biochar to reduce the leaching of the pesticides chlorpyrifos, diuron, glyphosate and MCPA in a sand column test system. In addition, time-dependent adsorption of the pesticides to the biochar and to the sand used in the columns was determined. The sorption kinetics was shown to be controlled by the log K
