The presence of higher-than-normal quantities of nickel is one of the most general features of ultramafic soils and is often suspected as the reason for their infertility. This study on the bioavailability of Ni in ultramafic soils derived from peridotites in New Caledonia showed important variations depending on the position of the soil in the landscape. In piedmont and non hydromorphic colluvio-alluvial soils, Ni was poorly absorbed by cultivated plants. In contrast, crops species grown in… CONTINUE READING
