ABSTRACT The effect of inoculation with Phanerochaete chrysosporium (P. chrysosporium) during different fermentation phases on remediation of pentachlorophenol (PCP)-contaminated soil waste (PSW) was investigated over 60 days. This was accomplished by evaluating physico-chemical and biochemical properties of composts, as well as bacterial community composition using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE). Results showed that the inoculations could significantly enhance composting efficiency and PCP removal. The best degree of maturity and highest PCP removal occurred in Run C (inoculation during the second fermentation phase) were compared with Runs A (control treatment) and B (inoculation during the first fermentation phase). A positive effect on production of manganese peroxidase (MnP) and lignin peroxidase (LiP) was found in inoculated runs, especially in Run C, while the production of laccase (Lac) was limited by P. chrysosporium inoculants. As a result of DGGE analysis, the compost bacterial community composition was altered by different inoculations, as indicated by the differences between the final composts. This study highlights the different effects of the inoculations on remediation performance of PSW. The inoculation during the second fermentation phase is more effective than that during the first fermentation phase

    ABSTRACT: This research was conducted to distinguish between the separate effects of the Phanerochaete chrysosporium inoculation and sample property heterogeneity induced by different inoculation regimes on the indigenous bacterial communities during agricultural waste composting. P. chrysosporium was inoculated during different phases. The bacterial community abundance and structure were determined by quantitative PCR and denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis analysis, respectively. Results indicated a significant stimulatory effect of P. chrysosporium inoculation on the bacterial community abundance. The bacterial community abundance significantly coincided with pile temperature, ammonium, and nitrate (P < 0.006). Variance partition analysis showed that the P. chrysosporium inoculation directly explained 20.5 % (P = 0.048) of the variation in the bacterial communities, whereas the sample property changes induced by different inoculation regimes indirectly explained up to 35.1 % (P = 0.002). The bacterial community structure was significantly related to pile temperature, water-soluble carbon (WSC), and C/N ratio when P. chrysosporium were inoculated. The C/N ratio solely explained 7.9 % (P = 0.03) of the variation in community structure, whereas pile temperature and WSC explained 7.7 % (P = 0.026) and 7.5 % (P = 0.034) of the variation, respectively. P. chrysosporium inoculation affected the indigenous bacterial communities most probably indirectly through increasing pile temperature, enhancing the substrate utilizability, and changing other physico-chemical factors.

    ABSTRACT: Soil-borne plant pathogens are responsible for causing many crop plant diseases, resulting in significant economic losses. Compost application to agricultural fields is an excellent natural approach, which can be taken to fight against plant pathogens. The application of organic waste products is also an environmentally friendly alternative to chemical use, which unfortunately is the most common approach in agriculture today. This review analyses pioneering and recent compost research, and also the mechanisms and mode of action of compost microbial communities for reducing the activity of plant pathogens in agricultural crops. In addition, an approach for improving the quality of composts through the microbial communities already present in the compost is presented. Future agricultural practices will almost definitely require integrated research strategies to help combat plant diseases.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of our study was 2-fold: (i) to evaluate the effect of dominant electron acceptor [either aerobic, methanogenic, or sulfate-reducing slurry bioreactor (SB)] and biostimulation with sucrose on lindane removal from heavy soil and (ii) to assess the effect of the type of combined environments [partially aerated methanogenic (PAM) and simultaneous methanogenic-sulfate reducing (M-SR)] and addition of silicone oil as solvent on lindane removal from a clayish agricultural soil with high levels of organic matter.In the first experiment, the main effect of electron acceptor was significant (pA≫M SBs. On the other hand, co-substrate sucrose was not significant (p=0.67). Yet, the interaction was moderately significant (p
