ABSTRACTEscherichia coliO157:H7 survived longer in soils from plastic-greenhouse cultivation than soils from the open field. Soil pH, organic carbon levels, and the ratio of bacterial phospholipid fatty acids (PLFAs) to fungal PLFAs played the significant roles in survival of O157:H7. Greater attention should be paid to the control of pathogen contamination under conditions of plastic-greenhouse cultivation.
