Study on Fate and Transport of Salinomycin Sodium in Sandy Soil

The goal of this study is to use soil column experiments to explore the fate and transport of SAL-Na in sandy and loamy sand soil. Salinomycin sodium (BIO COX) is a polyether ionophore that is extensively used to control coccidial infections and promote growth in chicken. Salinomycin sodium (SAL-Na) is more toxic than many other antibiotics and can be lethal if swallowed, breathed, or absorbed via the skin, so determining its destiny in the soil environment is critical. In sandy soil, the mobility of SAL-Na was measured. Experiments on soil column leaching revealed that the significantly The amount of SAL-Na given to each column was not leached from the soil fractions, as evidenced by the absence of sorbed SAL-Na in the leachate of sandy soils. In comparison to sterile soil, non-sterile soil exhibits higher SAL-Na mobility. The concentration of SAL-Na in leachate collected from the soil column (75 percent hydraulic conductivity) went through phosphate buffer was greater (0.48 mg/L), and the movement was likewise higher in non-sterile soil. In sandy soil leachate, almost 35% of SAL-Na was discovered.
