Selected in-®eld physical, chemical and biological indicators were measured for the rapid assessment of soil quality changes in a Sorrento silty clay loam as a result of compost and ammonium nitrate application to a broccoli ®eld (San Benito County, CA). Plots were laid out in a randomized complete block design with four replications of 0, 22 and 44 Mg haÿ1 compost treatments which were split to include fertilizer (165 kg N haÿ1) and no-fertilizer subplots. Soil samples were taken on 11 and 24… CONTINUE READING
