In this paper the effect of four different herbicides were examined on some parameters of carbon cycle of a chernozem soil in corn monoculture. While the effect of herbicides was negative an the total bacterim number and on the aerobic cellulose decomposing bacteria, the CO 2-production and the microbial biomass-C was't decreased, and what is more increased.
