The effects of lime, fertilizer and manure applications on soil organic matter status and soil physical properties are of importance to agricultural sustainability. Their effects are complex and many interactions can occur. In the short-term, liming can result in dispersion of clay colloids and formation of surface crusts. As pH is increased the surface negative charge on clay colloids increases and repulsive forces between particles dominate. However, at higher lime rates, Ca2+ concentrations… 
Soil structure and their management in farming system: A review
Soil structure applies an important effect on edaphic circumstances and the atmosphere. It is normally expressed as the degree of structural stability in soil. Soil structure stability or soil
Organic manure and lime change water vapour sorption of a red soil by altering water repellency and specific surface area
Manure and lime as fertiliser and conditioner are widely used on red soils to improve soil fertility and to alleviate soil acidity. Investigating the effects of these compounds on soil interfacial
Effect of 14-Year Long Term Fertilizer Management on Soil Organic Carbon Stock, Carbon Sequestration Rate and Nutrient Balances in Vertisols
Fertilizers are usually applied to soil for increasing or maintaining crop yields to meet the increasing demand of food. Application of inorganic fertilizers results in higher soil organic matter
Amending Soil with Sludge, Manure, Humic Acid, Orthophosphate and Phytic Acid: Effects on Infiltration, Runoff and Sediment Loss
Application of organic wastes to cultivated lands can replace mineral fertilizers but may also alter soil physical properties and enhance pollution potential. The objective of this study was to
Soil Quality Dynamics Following Long-Term Application of Poultry Manure and Sewage Sludge on Grassland
Organic manures can complement or even replace mineral fertilization of a pasture within a sustainable production system. In this article, an evaluation is made of the changes occurring in some
Organic waste recycling in agriculture and related effects on soil water retention and plant available water: a review
The decrease of organic matter content in agricultural soils is a problem of great concern to farmers around the world. Indeed, it lowers soil fertility that directly impairs agricultural crop
Effect of Three Types of Exogenous Organic Carbon on Soil Organic Matter and Physical Properties of a Sandy Technosol
Technosols made by covering agricultural soils with coastal sediments need additional organic matter (OM) to be suitable for agricultural use. Climate change will likely increase the frequency and
Application of soil amendments to contaminated soils for heavy metal immobilization and improved soil quality—a critical review
ABSTRACT Today, soil metal pollution has become a significant environmental issue of great public concern. This is because soil is both a major sink for heavy metal(loid)s (HMs) released into the


Effects of liming on phosphate availability in acid soils
SummaryThe critical factors involved in the plant-soil-phosphorus-lime interaction are outlined and discussed. Conflicting reports suggest that the prior liming of highly weathered acid soils can
Lime and Phosphate in the Soil-Plant System
Effect of manure application, aeration, and soil pH on soil nitrogen transformations and on certain soil test values.
Nitrate production under aerobic conditions was directly related to rate of manure application, period of incubation, and soil pH but was stopped under anaerobic conditions. Average recovery by
A review: long-term effects of agricultural systems on soil biochemical and microbial parameters
Changes in soil physical properties due to organic waste applications : a review
Land application of organic wastes such as animal manure, municipal wastes, and sewage sludge could alter the soil physical properties. Repeated substantial applications of waste increase the soil
Physical and chemical properties of a sandy loam receiving animal manure, mineral fertilizer or no fertilizer for 90 years
Summary Ninety years after the start of the Askov long-term fertilization experiment on sandy loam, bulk soil was taken from the 0–20 cm and 30–35 cm depths of unfertilized (UNF), animal-manure
Effect of liming on some chemical, biochemical, and microbiological properties of acid soils under spruce (Picea abies L.)
SummarySoil pH, total organic C, total N, exchangeable Al, available P, CO2 evolution, microbial biomass C and N, phosphatase and dehydrogenase activities were determined in acid soils sampled under
Effects of animal manure and mineral fertilizer on the total carbon and nitrogen contents of soil size fractions
Soil sampled in autumn 1984 in the 132 field (sandy loam soil) of the Askov long-term experiments was fractionated according to particle size using ultrasonic dispersion and sedimentation in water and did not influence clay and silt C : N ratios.
Influence of Sludge Organic Matter on Soil Physical Properties
In the last two decades, land disposal of sludge expanded after it appeared to be a generally advantageous and environmentally sound method. In addition to its fertilizing value, this organic
