Sewage sludge and NPK Application to enhance growth, yield and quality of kale and spinach crops

Sewage sludge is considered as a valuable supplement because of its high organic matter, macro and micro nutrients. Its application has been studied in combination with recommended fertilizer dose (NPK is combination of N, P and K) for crops, viz. Kale and Spinach. The experiment comprised nine treatments (T1=0%SS+0%NPK as Control, T2=25%SS+0%NPK, T3=50%SS+0%NPK, T4=75%SS+0%NPK, T5=100%SS+0%NPK, T6=25%SS+75%NPK,...

Characterization of soils of Jello Chancho Watershed: The case of Liban District, East Shewa Zone Ethiopia

Understanding of soil-physicochemical properties is necessary for appropriate utilization of soil resources. Soil resources characterization and classification are major requirements. In view of this, a study was conducted on soils of Jello-Chancho Watershed to characterize physicochemical properties of the soil. To achieve these objectives, three profiles were opened from the watershed and examined for their selected...

Sustained nutrient delivery system: A new perspective in bioremediation

Crude oil induced pollution on soil environment is an increasing trend due to incessant accidental release of this component into the environment. Bioremediation which is considered the most effective clean-up tool is faced with the challenge of sustained nutrient delivery to enhance and sustain the activities of oleophilic microbes. Slow release fertilizer (SRF) is a purposely designed system that releases nutrients in...
