Our research hypothesis was that Tifton 85 Bermudagrass when grown with antibiotic laden manure would uptake the antibiotics. This study demonstrates T85 ability to take up MON and OTC from soils spiked with these veterinary antibiotics. If T85 is used to recycle nutrients from manure on CAFO farms, phytoaccumulation of the antibiotics will result in these antibiotics being fed back to livestock. Data contains raw as well as process absorbaces/concentrations for the antibiotics of interest. ELISA was used to quantify antibiotic concentration in samples.
