The sugarcane industry in Brazil produce large amounts of organic wastes including vinasse and filter cake which have been applied to agricultural soil in appreciable amounts over the past two decades. This study examines ...
The long-term effects of farming practices on soil quality, as influenced by farmer attitude and farm characteristics
Several farming systems, in a region of the Dark Brown soil zone west of Saskatoon, were investigated to identify farming practices that are soil-conserving, or soil-degrading, by measuring their effects on soil quality. ...
Impact of long-term cultivation on the status of cadmium in chernozemic soils
Cadmium (Cd) from the soil can accumulate in our bodies via the consumption of our crops and cause serious health problems. While it has been documented that long-term cultivation affects physical and chemical properties ...
