Project Details

Description

Methyl parathion is one of the most toxic organophosphates, with category 1 (extremely toxic), which places it in the most prohibited lists, its action

Objective

To evaluate the degradation process of methyl parathion with microflora of agricultural soils and its cross effect with chlorpyrifos and malathion.

Expected results

Characterization of autochthonous microorganisms of soils that degrade methyl parathion.
