Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), being a rich source of organic materials, can be used for agricultural applications as an important source of nutrients for soil and plants. This is also an alternative beneficial management practice for MSW generated in developing countries. In the present study, MSW treated soil samples from last four to six years at farmer’s field in Rohtak and Gurgaon states (Haryana, India) were collected. The samples were analyzed for all-important agricultural parameters and… Expand

Effect of the Long-Term Application of Sewage Sludge to A Calcareous Soil on Its Total and Bioavailable Content in Trace Elements, and Their Transfer to the Crop
Sewage sludge (SS) can be used as an organic amendment in agricultural soils, provided they comply with the relevant legislation. This use can incorporate traces of metals into the soil, which canExpand
Effect of Municipal Solid Waste Leachate on Soil Enzymes
The paper aims to investigate the enzyme activity of soils exposed to Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) leachate. Soil enzymes are useful indicators for soil quality management as they respond to changesExpand

Total and available soil trace element concentrations in two Mediterranean agricultural systems treated with municipal waste compost or conventional mineral fertilizers.
TLDR
It is shown that compost amendment affects more the available than the total metal concentrations in the two types of soils studied and thus it is important into legislation that metal "bioavailability" may be considered in defining threshold metal values. Expand
Municipal solid waste compost amendment in agricultural soil: changes in soil microbial biomass
Agricultural application of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), as nutrient source for plants and as soil conditioner, is the most cost-effective option of MSW management because of its advantages overExpand
Long-term effects of municipal solid waste compost application on soil enzyme activities and microbial biomass
A long-term field experiment utilising barley received four different treatments prior to sowing: municipal solid waste (MSW) compost at either 20 t ha 21 (C20) or 80 t ha 21 (C80); cow manure (MA)Expand
Effects of municipal solid waste compost and mineral fertilizer amendments on soil properties and heavy metals distribution in maize plants (Zea mays L.).
TLDR
The results showed that MSW compost increased Cu, Pb and Zn in soil, while NPK fertilizer increased Cd and Ni, but decreased Hg concentration in soils, so metal uptake and translocation were lower in aerial plant parts. Expand
Changes in the microbial community of an arable soil caused by long‐term metal contamination
Summary The effects of past applications of farmyard manure (FYM, applied from 1942 to 1967), metalcontaminated sewage sludge (applied from 1942 to 1961) and mineral fertilizer (NPK, applied fromExpand
Bioavailability and plant accumulation of heavy metals and phosphorus in agricultural soils amended by long-term application of sewage sludge.
TLDR
Despite the observed increases in metal bioavailability sewage sludge applications did not lead to an increase in plant shoot concentrations (in wild plants or crop species), and depending on the plant species, Mn and Zn tissue concentrations were within the deficiency level for most plants. Expand
Soil Biology of Low Grade Landfill Soil with Sewage Sludge Amendment
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the feasibility of using sewage sludge for ameliorating landfill cover soils by assessing soil biology and nutrient cycling because of the poor physicalExpand
Trace element availability in a sewage sludge-amended cotton grown Mediterranean soil.
TLDR
The effects of repeated sludge application for 4 yr on trace element availability to cotton shows that trace element mobility can be reduced within a time-scale of a few years, provided soils have a relatively sufficient retention capacity and applied sludge has low heavy metal content. Expand

TLDR
The study showed that Cd has the highest mobility in sludge treated soil followed by Cu, Cr, Zn, Ni and Pb, and the effect of sewage sludge on cation exchange capacity was not so clear. Expand
