Sixty years of seasonal irrigation affects carbon storage in soils beneath pasture grazed by sheep
(Elsevier BV, 2012-02-15)
For sixty years at Winchmore, South Island, New Zealand (43°48′S, 171°48′E, 160 masl), stoney soils under continuous pasture grazing by sheep have received rainfall (nil irrigation) or rainfall and irrigation as required ...
Metal bioavailability dynamics during a two-year trial using ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) grown in soils treated with biosolids and metal salts
(CSIRO Publishing, 2012)
A 24-month field lysimeter experiment using ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) grown in three soil types was used to investigate metal bioavailability dynamics following amendment with biosolids and metal salts (Cd, Cu, Ni, Zn). ...
Gradient differences in soil metal solubility and uptake by shoots and roots of wheat (T. aestivum)
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2014-05)
The aim of this research was to identify and quantify gaps in currents methods and models for predicting the plant availability of selected nutrient and contaminant metals (Cu, Ni, Zn, Cd) in soil. This study investigated ...
Plant biomass management impacts on short-term soil phosphorus dynamics in a temperate grassland
(Springer-Verlag on behalf of the International Society of Soil Science, 2018-04)
The objective of this study was to quantify the combined effects of long-term plant biomass retention/removal and environmental conditions on soil microbial biomass phosphorus (P), bioavailable P, and acid phosphomonoesterase ...
Impacts of long-term plant biomass management on soil phosphorus under temperate grassland
(Springer International Publishing AG, 2018-06)
Aims: We assessed and quantified the cumulative impact of 20 years of biomass management on the nature and bioavailability of soil phosphorus (P) accumulated from antecedent fertiliser inputs. Methods: Soil (0–2.5, 2.5–5, ...
