Chemical and biological observations were made on sewage sludge in a simulated trenching system in the greenhouse. Limed and unlimed raw and digested sludges were placed in simulated trenches in soil profile boxes in which corn (Zea mays L.) was sown. During the 160-day growth period, roots penetrated entrenched digested sludge and root growth proliferated throughout the sludge. Root penetration into the raw sludges was severely restricted. Gas analysis showed that anaerobic conditions… CONTINUE READING
