Due to the environmental concerns about the herbicide atrazine accumulation in food products and water reservoirs, there is a need to develop safe and economical methods for its dissipation. The main aim of this study was to evaluate the atrazine dissipation in a biobed system inoculated with immobilized white-rot fungi in a pelletized support (PS). All fungal isolates evaluated were efficient in colonizing the surface and inner parts of the PS and without differences observed in the colonization over the assay. The highest atrazine dissipation (93%) was observed for Stereum hirsutum Ru-104 after 60 days of incubation. In contrast, the lowest atrazine dissipatio...
