Integron abundance and diversity were studied in soil amended with pig slurry. Real-time PCR illustrated a significant increase in class 1 integron prevalence post slurry-application with increased prevalence still evident at 10 months post-application. Culture dependent data revealed 10 genera, including putative human pathogens, carrying class 1 and 2 integrons.
