Soil survey and characterization of soil of Argo- Gedilala Sub Watershed in Dugda District, Central Rift Valley of Ethiopia

A detailed study on soil resources characterization based on the understanding of the soil system is not available at Dugda district. With the cognizance of this fact, the present study was conducted to characterize the morphological and physicochemical properties of soils, classify the soils according to World Reference Base for Soil Resources (WRB) of Argo-Gedilala Subwatershed in Dugda District of Oromia Regional...

Cadmium and lead contents in compost amended oxisols in the western highlands of Cameroon

This study evaluates the Cadmium (Cd) and Lead (Pb) concentrations of an oxisols in a field where the plots had received one, two, and three year’s application of compost (20 t/ha), together with a control plot. The soil was sampled at depths of 0-10, 10-20, and 20-30 cm for analysis of total Cd and Pb principally, but also other soil physico-chemical properties. Cd and Pb bulk contents were measured by atomic...

Response of food barley (Hordeum vulgaer L.) with combined uses of lime and varied phosphorus sources on acidic nitisols of Wolmera District

A field experiment was conducted on acidic nitisols of Wolmera District in two locations at 2017 cropping season to determine the response of barley for the combined application of lime and different phosphorus fertilizers. Several barley growth performances, yield, and plant samples were collected with soil samples to determine soil acidity attributes and nutrient use efficiency. Barley grain yield and growth...
