Macro and Micro Nutrient Supply to Soil and Plants from

The effects of sugar mill mud application on the availability of nutrients for plant uptake were investigated. Mill mud generated from conventional sugar mill operations was applied in three different rates and a leafy vegetable, locally called “PuiShak” or Indian spinach ( Basellarubra L.) was grown for 60 days as a test crop in a pot culture experiment.

Do genetically modified plants affect adversely on soil

Nov 01, 2016 Some soil microorganisms can be directly examined using classic culture-dependent methods (Hu et al., 2013, Wang et al., 2013); however, soil microorganisms are diverse and cultivable microbes account for less than 10% of all soil microorganisms.Therefore, the cultivation-dependent total colony-forming units (CFUs) reflect changes only in a small subset of soil microbes, this drawback

Metal Availability following Paper Mill and Alkaline

The Cu/Mo ratio of soybean plants at pH > 6.8 fell below 2:1, however, and may pose a risk for inducing Cu metabolism disorder in ruminants. Results of this study indicate that paper mill biosolids and alkaline residuals, when applied with respect to regulations and soil pH, have a limited effect on metal accumulation in plants and soil.

Micronutrients, Agric. & Nutrition Crop and Soil Science

Soil amendments are frequently used by farmers to adjust soil pH and to enhance plant growth properties of soils. Using lime (CaCO3) raises soil pH permitting acid-intolerant legume species to grow in soils that would otherwise be too acidic for their growth. It is also used to supply Ca to plants.
