Impact of organic residues application as a soil amendment on response in soil acidity


Author(s): Anusuiya Panda, Pramod Jha, Awanish Kumar and RK Bajpai

Abstract: An experiment was conducted on Alfisols of northwest India, to assess the impact of organic residue applications as a Soil amendment on response in soil acidity. In the present investigation four crop residues maize, wheat, rice and soybean were tested in completely randomized design. The incorporation of Zea mays, Oryza sativa, Triticum aestivum and Glycine max crop residues increased soil pH compared with the initial value and no significant difference was observed between the EC of initial and amended soils. The addition of soybean and maize residue in acid soils during the incubation period led to significantly decline in Al3+ concentration compared with other treatments.
