Many pasture areas have Al toxicity, P deficiency and low pH as limiting factors; thus, slag from steel mill can improve Tanzania grass phosphate nutrition by the beneficial effects of the interaction of Si and P. The objectives of this work were to evaluate the “availability” of P and Si in the soil, growth, P and Si accumulation and dry matter production in Tanzania grass plants. The experiment was carried out in a green house in a low-P soil amended with slag and lime and fertilized with P…

Responses of microbial biomass, available phosphorus, and sugarcane yield after filter cake amendment in a tropical soil.
A field experiment was conducted from 2012 to 2015 aiming to evaluate two different P sources associated with filter cake on soil microbial biomass, available P and sugarcane yield.


Carbonate-silicate ratio for soil correction and influence on nutrition, biomass production and quality of palisade grass
Silicates can be used as soil correctives, with the advantage of being a source of silicon, a beneficial element to the grasses. However, high concentrations of silicon in the plant would affect the
Yield and mineral nutrition of soybean, maize, and Congo signal grass as affected by limestone and slag
The objective of this work was to evaluate the efficiency of superficial application of limestone and slag, and their effects on soil chemical attributes and on yield and mineral nutrition of
Silicon accumulation and water deficit tolerance in Brachiaria grasses
The beneficial effects of silicon (Si) fertilization have been observed for several plant species, especially when submitted to stress, either biotic or abiotic. Among the possible reasons for the
Produção e valor nutritivo do capim-tanzânia fertilizado com nitrogênio e fósforo
Increasing N fertilization in the presence of P fertilization increased the production and nutritive value of tanzaniagrass and there was no difference for NDF concentration as a function of N and P doses, but CP concentration increased with increasingN fertilization when P was not added.

Influência de silicato e calcário na nutrição, produtividade e qualidade da batata sob deficiência hídrica
Ca and Mg silicate application can ameliorate soil acidity and increase Ca, Mg, P, and Si availability to plants. Although Si is not an essential nutrient, its application is beneficial for plant
Efeito do silicato de cálcio no teor de silício no solo e na produção de grãos de arroz de sequeiro
In addition to improving chemical attributes of the soil, such as pH, exchangeable Ca and available Si, calcium silicate fertilization in soils with low soluble silicon (Si) can also affect rice
The objective of this study was to evaluate the levels of silicon (Si) extracted by using calcium chloride and acetic acid solutions, in Haplortox soil samples fertilized with phosphate and silicate.
