The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of multiple applications of biomass ash to acid soils. The study was carried out in two stands of Pinus radiata D. Don, aged 13 and 15 years, in the province of Lugo (northwest Spain). The soils in the stands were developed on lutites and migmatites. Experimental plots (each 1,225 m2) were established, and the experimental treatments were as follows: control (untreated), ash (addition of 4.5 Mg dry matter ha−1 year−1 in 2003, 2004, and… CONTINUE READING
