The black soil in northeast China is considered one of the most fertile soils in China. Consequently, the black soil region has become one of the most important regions for cereal grain production in China. Agriculture has developed rapidly since the early part of the nineteenth century. To date, approximately 70 percent of total land in the area is cultivated. Even though the agricultural production in this region is increasing continuously, some soil fertility quality problems have become…

Basic properties of agricultural black soils in Slovakia using the INBS criteria

Distribution of black soils in Slovakia using the International Network of Black Soils (INBS) is evaluated in this paper. Numerous soil profiles (17,620 soil profiles from the complex soil survey of

The Effect of Fulvic Acids Derived from Different Materials on Changing Properties of Albic Black Soil in the Northeast Plain of China

Empirical evidence is provided that addition of fulvic acid from MDLF and PDLF had more positive effects on soil properties and plant growth than fulvic acids from PDSF, and this investigation suggests that application of ful Vic acid in liquid form can improve nutrient availability and affect other important chemical, biological, and physical properties of soils.

Effect of long-term cultivation on soil organic carbon fractions and metal distribution in humic and fulvic acid in black soil, Northeast China

Cultivation affects soil organic matter and its fractions. Fulvic acid (FA) and humic acid (HA) make up an important part of soil organic matter, and their binding capacity influences heavy metal

Fuzzy Min-Max Neural Network With Fuzzy Lattice Inclusion Measure for Agricultural Circular Economy Region Division in Heilongjiang Province in China

The specific index system has been constructed and according to these indexes to divide the regions via a novel but more efficient clustering method called Improved Fuzzy min-max neural network with fuzzy lattice inclusion measure (FL-IFMM) proposed in this paper.

Effect of long-term fertilization strategies on bacterial community composition in a 35-year field experiment of Chinese Mollisols

The application of MPK shifted soil bacterial community composition towards a better status, and such shifts were primarily derived from changes in soil pH and OM, indicating alleviation of soil acidification.
