Abstract :
Slow release atrazine containing alginate-agar based bead formulations have been prepared and characterized by SEM, FTIR and swelling studies. The release of atrazine from the beads occurred through non-Fickian diffusion mechanism. The release of atrazine from the beads in the soil has been observed slower and lesser in soil as compared to the in vitro release.
