In this paper the potential of a microbiome for degradation of prochloraz is studied. Concentrations of 100, 50, 10 and 5 ppm were considered, evaluating the rate of decrease of the concentration by HPLC-PDA chromatography. A decrease of 50% was observed, verifying that during the degradation process different populations were expressed microbiome. The effect of the initial concentration of the fungicide was analyzed, determining whether the degradative capacity is affected by this parameter. The operation of this microbioma allow its application in the agricultural fungicide contaminated areas in Mexico producing territories.
