Abstract

Even though animal waste is a resource, fecal contamination of soil is concern for the public. Therefore, in study, die-off of Escherichia coli (E.coli) was investigated in a silt loam soil under different temperature and pH. Results indicated that E. coli persisted about a month under 30°C and and pH4 and lowest under 20°C and pH6. It is recommended that animal waste be applied during hot season of the year before liming of soil is carried out.
