Thermography for characterization of soil water repellency at larger spatial scales
Soil water repellency (SWR) is natural phenomenon occurring in soils throughout the world. It is a surface property that reduces the attraction of soil for water. Measurement of soil water repellency is done at the point ...
Using nitrogen fertiliser to decrease phosphorus loss from high phosphorus soils
Decline in soil phosphorus (P) concentrations is slow, and environmentally significant concentrations of P can be lost to water long after fertiliser application is decreased. One potential method to accelerate the decline ...
Changes in Cd bioavailability in metal spiked soils amended with biosolids: results from a wheat seedling bioassay
(International Union of Soil Sciences., 2010-08)
Three contrasting soils were collected from the Canterbury region in New Zealand and treated with a one-off application of Cd (1, 5 and 10 mg/kg applied as sulphate), in the presence and absence of biosolids applied at a ...
Thermography to assess evaporative fluxes on organic amended water repellent soils
Soil water repellency (SWR) is natural phenomenon occurring in soils throughout the world. It is a surface property associated with the organic composition in soils that reduces the affinity of soil for water. Its impact ...
Can phosphorus fertilizers sparingly soluble in water decrease phosphorus leaching loss from an acid peat soil?
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc. on behalf of the British Society of Soil Science, 2016-09)
© 2016 British Society of Soil Science The potential risk of phosphorus (P) loss in surface run-off can be decreased using sparingly soluble forms of P fertilizer (e.g. reactive phosphate rock (RPR)). However, it is unclear ...
Research and application of biochar in New Zealand
(ASA / CSSA / SSSA, 2016)
Readers will appreciate the comprehensive review of the latest biochar research and applications and gain critical guidance in best biochar generation and use.
A bioassay to compare the disease suppressive capacity of pasture soils
(New Zealand Plant Protection Society (Inc.), 2015)
© 2015 New Zealand Plant Protection Society (Inc.). Dynamic pathogen complexes can develop under pastures, thereby substantially reducing potential productivity. Suppression of such pathogen complexes is therefore of great ...
Mobilisation of recalcitrant soil nutrient fractions supports foliar nitrogen to phosphorus homeostasis in a seabird soil
(Springer Verlag on behalf of the Royal Netherlands Society of Agricultural Science, 2014-12)
Although the nutrient enrichment literature emphasises anthropogenic sources, seabirds deposit large quantities of marine detritus at breeding and roosting sites. Little is known of the chemical fractions and plant ...
Effects of long-term irrigation on soil phosphorus under temperate grazed pasture
(Wiley on behalf of British Society of Soil Science, 2018-01-18)
The effect of 62 years of different irrigation regimes on the amounts, forms and distribution of phosphorus (P) in the soil profile to 100 cm under grazed pasture was determined. Irrigation treatments included nil irrigation ...
Effects of plantation forest species on soil properties
(International Union of Soil Sciences, 2010-08)
Large scale afforestation of grasslands has occurred in New Zealand. Detailed investigation of changes in soil properties over time following establishment of different tree species is necessary to understand the impacts ...
