Abstract

Nonionic surfactants such as alkylamine ethoxylates is generally added in insecticide formulation as an additive. Tallowamine ethoxylate is one of such additive used in the formulation of many insecticides. Large deposition of insecticide additives in agriculture farm results in the infertility of soil. The deteriorating health of soils and plants has therefore, drawn the attention of researchers as to how the soil fertility and associated activities of microorganisms can be protected. The present research work describes the biodegradation of tallowamine ethoxylate by Pseudomonas desmolyticum NCIM 2112. Soil degradation study shows the complete degradation of compound with decrease in organic matter content and increase in number of soil microflora and CO evolution rate. The phytotoxicity indicates retarded growth and germination inhibition of treated seeds of Sorghum bicolor and Oryza sativa. Pseudomonas desmolyticum NCIM 2112 degrades tallowamine ethoxylate into compounds like ethylenimine and acetamide which are nontoxic in nature.
