Se ha visto que el biocarbon mejora la estructura del suelo y la retencion de agua, mejora la disponibilidad y la retencion de nutrientes, controla la acidez y reduce la toxicidad de metales pesados en las raices de las plantas. En este trabajo se investiga el uso de biocarbon de cama de codorniz (QLB) en la disponibilidad de Cd para la planta de jatrofa (Jatropha curcas L.) en un estudio de laboratorio. Se realiza una combinacion factorial con cuatro variedades nuevas de jatrofa (Takfa, Doi… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Effects of biochar on enhanced nutrient use efficiency of green bean, Vigna radiata L.
A suitable concentration of cassava stem biochar produced at 350 °C was evaluated for green bean growth from germination to seed production in pots over 8 weeks and significantly enhanced soil fertility and plant growth.
Cadmium Phytoremediation Potential of Napiergrass Cultivated in Kyushu, Japan
Napiergrass cultivar Wruk Wona was grown as an annual crop in cadmium- (Cd-) contaminated soils under two cutting frequencies and the soil Cd concentration was reduced by 4.6% when managed by cutting twice in a single year of Napiergrass cultivation.
Immobilisation of arsenic, copper, manganese and lead in gold mine tailings by oil palm empty fruit bunch and rice husk biochars
Biochar has recently received great attention due to its physico-chemical properties which affects soil fertility and contaminant immobilisation as well as serving carbon sinks and sequestration in
Cadmium immobilization in the soil and accumulation by spinach (Spinacia oleracea) depend on biochar types under controlled and field conditions
In the present study, efficiency of different biochars (BCs) on cadmium (Cd) immobilization and its bioavailability to spinach were investigated. In the first experiment, Cd-spiked soil was amended
Pongamia pinnata L. Leaves Biochar Increased Growth and Pigments Syntheses in Pisum sativum L. Exposed to Nutritional Stress
It is suggested that the soil application of 2%PLB + FF has the greatest impact on pea vegetative growth and leaf chlorophyll, carotenoids, anthocyanin, and lycopene contents in Pisum sativum L.
Role of Biochar in Remediating Heavy Metals in Soil
Heavy metals are persistent pollutants in the environment which contaminate the food chain, pose risk to human health, and intimidate soil quality. Biochar has been proved efficient to reduce the
Biochars and Its Implications on Soil Health and Crop Productivity in Semi-Arid Environment
Land degradation and climate change are important associated processes necessitating appropriate management options to solve alarming food security threats in developing nations. Biochar produced

Review of the Current Situation of Cd Contamination in Agricultural Field in the Mae Sot District, Tak Province, Northwestern Thailand
This paper reviews contamination status, sources and remediation of Cd in agricultural land in Mae Sot District, Tak Province, Northwestern Thailand. The Cd contamination became an environmental


Zeolite ameliorates the adverse effect of cadmium contamination on growth and nodulation of soybean plant (Glycine max L.).
In present study effect of cadmium (Cd) contamination and Zeolite presence in growth media on soybean plants (Glycine max L.) was evaluated. The experiment was conducted as a 3x3 factorial design in
Plant availability of arsenic and cadmium as influenced by biochar application to soil.
Biochar has gained significant importance due to its ability to increase long-term soil carbon pool and crop productivity. A pot experiment was conducted to investigate the influence of biochar on
Removal of heavy metals by native accumulator plants
Heavy metals are one of the most important environmental pollutants. In recent years, many low cost sorbets such as algae, fungi, bacteria and plants have been investigated for their biosorption
Using poultry litter biochars as soil amendments
Despite the recent interest in biochars as soil amendments for improving soil quality and increasing soil carbon sequestration, there is inadequate knowledge on the soil amendment properties of these
Influence of biochars on nitrous oxide emission and nitrogen leaching from two contrasting soils.
It is proposed that the increased effectiveness of biochars in reducing N2O emissions and ammonium leaching over time was due to increased sorption capacity ofBiochars through oxidative reactions on the biochar surfaces with ageing.
Influence of biochar use on sugarcane growth, soil parameters, and groundwater quality
This study deals with the influence of biochar use on sugarcane growth and nitrate-nitrogen percolation losses, as well as chemical and physical properties of Shimajiri maji soil. Two varieties of
