  • Interactive Effect of Residue Quality and Agroecologies Modulate Soil C-
           and N-Cycling Enzyme Activities, Microbial Gene Abundance, and Metabolic
           Quotient

    • Abstract: Understanding interactive effect of agroecology explained by rainfall, temperature, elevation, and biochemical composition of residues on soil microbial abundance and functions is crucial for unraveling soil ecological processes. This study aimed to investigate how agroecology and residue quality influence enzymatic activities, gene abundance, and metabolic quotient (qCO2). A field experiment was conducted using Leucaena leucocephala (LL) (high-quality residue) and Acacia decurrens (AD) (low-quality residue) in soils of highland and midland agroecologies. These residues differed in decomposability, characterized by a ratio of (lignin + polyphenol)/N of 5.0 for high-quality residue versus 21.0 for low-quality residue. Two experimental setups were employed: soil with litter mixture in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tubes and residues buried in the surface soil using litterbags. Soil samples were collected after 30, 120, and 270 days of incubation and analyzed for biochemical properties, enzyme activities, and the abundance of nitrifying and total archaea and bacteria. Soil respiration was also measured at different intervals in the field. qCO2 was calculated using microbial biomass (MBC) and daily respiration (DCO2). Linear mixed model () revealed that combined factors of agroecologies and residue qualities affected enzymatic activities, microbial abundance, soil properties, and qCO2. Agroecological differences exerted a greater influence than residue qualities. Positive and negative significant correlations (,r = 0.27 to 0.67) were found between different C and N pools as well as enzymatic activities. Positive correlations () were observed between the abundance of total bacteria, total archaea, and ammonia-oxidizing bacteria versus leucine-aminopeptidases. qCO2 was influenced more by β-xylosidase, leucine-aminopeptidases, and thermolysin-like neutral metalloproteases (TLP) than by β-D-glucosidase and β-D-cellobiohydrolase. Leucine-aminopeptidases and TLP were identified as rate-limiting factors for protein and peptide decomposition, while β-xylosidase controlled hemicellulose degradation. In summary, this study provides insights into the intricate relationships between agroecology, residue quality, enzymatic activities, and microbial communities, shedding light on key processes governing soil ecological functions.

  • Land Use Contributions to Heavy Metals/Metaloids Pollution in the Tano
           Basin, Ghana, and Its Associated Health Risks to Dependant Communities

    • Abstract: Increased anthropogenic activities are suspected to have contributed to the Tano basin heavy metal/metalloids water quality. However, data on land use contribution to the basin’s heavy metal/metalloids pollution are limited. The study assessed the contribution of land use to the basin’s heavy metals/metalloids pollution by assessing the levels of heavy metals/metalloids in 36 water samples taken from the source/control and experimental sites along the basin. Atomic absorption spectrophotometer was used to analysis samples. Metals/metalloids concentrations in water samples from the basin’s source and the physicochemical parameters were compared with the corresponding concentrations in samples from the experimental sites. Significantly, higher heavy metal/metalloids concentrations and physicochemical levels were identified in the experimental sites than the source/control site. Heavy metal/metalloids levels at the source were as follows: As (0.001 ± 0.11 mg/L)

  • Status of Soil Physicochemical Properties in Forests and Savannas Restored
           Using the Ecosystem-Based Adaptation Approach in Eastern Rwanda

    • Abstract: The concept of soil quality was developed to describe the capacity of soil to perform ecosystem functions properly. Nowadays, soil quality is affected by climate change effects. To remediate the problem, the ecosystem-based adaptation approach (EbA) was initiated to restore degraded ecosystems. In Rwanda, the approach was initiated in 2016 to restore degraded wetlands, savannas, and forests. However, nothing is known about how the restoration improved soil quality. This research aims to reveal the status of soil physicochemical properties in restored forests and savannas in Eastern Rwanda. Soil cores were collected and analyzed for soil pH, electrical conductivity, ammonium, nitrates, total nitrogen, organic carbon, available phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, cation exchange capacity, structure, texture, and soil water content. Results indicated that the restored and natural forests offer better conditions of soil properties. The restored forest (plot A) had lower level of soil pH and had higher electrical conductivity, total nitrogen, organic carbon, available phosphorus, calcium, potassium, magnesium, cation exchange capacity, and sandy loam soil type. The nonrestored forest (plot B) was rich in ammonium, silt, water content, and sandy loam soil type, while the natural forest (plot C) was rich in soil pH, electrical conductivity, total nitrogen, organic carbon, calcium, magnesium, cation exchange capacity, and soil water content and had loam soil compared to plots A and B. In savannas, all plots were similar in vegetation type and tree species. Higher levels of ammonium were found in plots A and C. The available phosphorus and potassium content was significantly higher in plot A than in the plots B and C. In all savanna plots, soil was sandy loam. Like in the forests, sodium was the same in all plots. We recommend future studies to validate these findings.

  • Toxicity and Availability of Manganese in the Growth of Tropical Grasses
           in Contaminated Soil

    • Abstract: Phytoremediation is a technique with high viability due to its low cost and minimal environmental impact. However, there are a few results regarding the use of tropical grasses in the phytoremediation of manganese (Mn), and there is no clear definition of which extractor is more suitable for assessing Mn availability in soils. The objective of this study was to evaluate the growth potential and phytoremediation of five tropical grasses in Mn-contaminated soil, as well as to assess the efficiency of four extractors in Mn extraction. The grass cultivars evaluated included Aruana and Tanzânia of Megathyrsus maximus, Xaraés and Marandu of Urochloa brizantha, and Basilisk of Urochloa decumbens grown in Typic Hapludox (Oxisol) amended with 0, 50, 150, and 450 mg of Mn per kg−1 of soil. The experiment was conducted in a greenhouse, using a completely randomized experimental design in a 5 × 4 factorial scheme, with five replications. The experimental period lasted for 90 days. The dry matter of the shoot and root of the grasses was evaluated. Mn concentration in dry matter and its availability in soil were extracted by Mehlich-1 and DTPA pH 7.3, while the semitotal concentration was determined by USEPA 3051 and total Mn by USEPA 3052 method. Tropical grasses showed reduced growth with increasing Mn rates in the soil, with the following sequence in the reduction in growth: Aruana > Basilisk > Marandu > Xaraés and lastly the Tanzânia. The Aruana cultivar showed greater potential for phytoextraction due to its higher ability to accumulate Mn in its biomass, followed by the Basilisk cultivar. The four different evaluated extractors were efficient in measuring Mn concentrations in the soil, with higher toxicity critical levels for the USEPA 3051 method due to the semitotal extraction nature and USEPA 3052 due to total Mn extraction. The growth of tropical grasses is reduced with increasing Mn rates applied to the soil. The Aruana of M. maximus grass has greater potential for phytoextraction of Mn-contaminated soils, followed by Basilisk of Urochloa decumbens, Xaraés and Marandu of U. brizantha, and Tanzânia of M. maximus. The Mehlich-1, DTPA pH 7.3, USEPA 3051, and 3052 extractors were efficient in extracting and evaluating Mn availability in soil for tropical grasses. The USEPA 3051 and 3052 methods presented higher toxicity critical levels.

  • Assessing the Impacts of Soil Water Conservation Activities and Slope
           Position on the Soil Properties of the Gelda Watershed, Northwest Ethiopia
           

    • Abstract: Soil erosion debilitates soil fertility and agricultural productivity in Ethiopia. Soil and water conservation (SWC) measures have been implemented to address this issue, but their effects have not been evaluated in different parts of the country. This study was therefore conducted to evaluate the effects of SWC structures and slope position on soil properties in the Gelda watershed, northwestern Ethiopia. Core and disturbed composite soil samples were collected at a depth of 0–20 cm from the upper (15–20%), middle (10–15%), and lower (4–10%) slope positions of cultivated fields treated with soil bund (SB), stone-faced soil bund (SFSB), and stone-faced soil bund stabilized by Sesbania sesban (SFSBS) and from untreated fields (control). The samples were analyzed by soil analytical techniques. The results revealed that the clay particles, pH, soil organic matter (SOM), total nitrogen (TN), available phosphorus (AvP), cation-exchange capacity (CEC), and exchangeable Ca2+, Mg2+, and K+ were significantly () increased, while bulk density (BD) and the sand fractions decreased in SWC-treated plots. On the lower slope, significantly higher () clay, silt, pH, SOM, TN, AvP, CEC, and exchangeable bases were recorded, while the upper slope had the highest sand and BD values. The interactions of slope and SWC structures affected the distribution of sand, TN, AvP, exchangeable Ca2+, and Mg2+. The SWC structures implemented in the watershed improved soil fertility, but the impact was stronger when stone-faced soil bunds were integrated with Sesbania sesban plant species. Therefore, during the implementation of SWC structures, the integration of soil physical structures with plant species aligned with slope positions should be considered, as both factors have an impact on soil fertility improvement and soil erosion in the study area and similar agroecologies. The impacts of SWC structures on crop yield, their economic implications, and environmental benefits for the studied watershed and for the region as a whole need further investigation.

  • Hydrogeochemical Evaluation of Groundwater Quality and Its Applicability
           for Various Purposes in the Drought-Prone Konso Zone, Rift Valley,
           Southern Ethiopia

    • Abstract: The present study area, the Konso Zone, is in Rift Valley, Southern Ethiopia, and highly depends on rivers and groundwater for economic and social development. Water availability in this area faces multiple challenges, including scarcity, quality concerns, and seasonal variations. In the Rift Valley region, including the present study area, groundwater quality is particularly problematic due to high fluoride levels. Moreover, the high concentrations of total dissolved solids in Konso Zone groundwater pose challenges for industrial, agricultural, and drinking purposes. GIS-based spatial analysis techniques, hydrogeochemical analyses, and water quality indices were used in the current study. The evaluation of water quality involved the utilization of both groundwater quality and irrigation water quality indices. In the study area, the cations and anions exhibited a general trend with Na+ > Mg2+ > Ca2+ > K+ > Fe2+ and HCO3− > Cl−, SO42− > NO3− > F−. Multiple water types were identified within the research area, including Na-HCO3, Ca-Na-HCO3, NaCl, and Ca-Mg/Cl, with Na-HCO3 being the most prevalent. The formation of the NaHCO3 water type is primarily attributed to ion exchange processes, with siliciclastic aquifers being linked to cation exchange in sodium bicarbonate groundwater. Total Dissolved Solids and SO42− contaminants significantly impact the water quality, resulting in deterioration. Gibbs’s figure indicates that 50% of the water samples were found where rocks were weathered, demonstrating the importance of water-rock interactions in groundwater composition. Water samples containing more fluoride than the WHO’s limit of 1.50 mg/L were deemed unsuitable for consumption. Regarding irrigation suitability, most water samples from the Konso area were acceptable, except for the sodium percentage in 66.6% of the samples, which was unsuitable for irrigation. There are 26.67% of samples that are of questionable quality, 66.67% that are deemed inappropriate, and 26.67% that are deemed unacceptable. These findings underscore the pressing need for comprehensive strategies and interventions to address water quality issues in the Konso Zone, emphasizing the critical importance of monitoring and managing groundwater resources to ensure sustainable and safe water access for various regional uses.

  • Negative Effect of Soil Compaction and Investigation of Its Relation with
           Soil Physiochemical Properties in Mechanization Farming System

    • Abstract: The primary source of soil compaction is weight bearing down on the soil, which occurs frequently on agricultural land due to foot movement, livestock tramples, or the heavy weight of farm equipment. The primary cause of significant soil compaction is the driving of heavy machinery over moist soils. In this paper, the negative side of soil compaction and its influence on soil physical and chemical characteristics at the Awash Melkassa farm field located in Ethiopia were investigated. Compaction of soil test was taken at three different depths which are 10 cm, 20 cm, and 30 cm with the help of a hydraulically operated cone penetrometer integrated into the tractor. The three depths were expanded into 15 sample locations (designated as point A to point O) to collect 35 data points on soil compaction using a hydraulic-powered Spot-on digital soil cone penetrometer across a 0.6-hectare farmland area. A correlation analysis was conducted on the 15 sample points (A to O) to assess soil compaction in the field. In addition, soil samples were collected from specific farm locations at depths ranging from 0 to 10 cm, 10–20 cm, and 20–30 cm for subsequent physical and chemical tests in the laboratory. During the harvesting season, sample location A exhibited the highest soil compaction values, reaching 6,159 kPa, while the lowest values were observed at sample point F, measuring 327 kPa. For the seeding season, the sample point B showed the highest soil compaction values at 6,052 kPa, while the lowest values were recorded at sample point K, measuring 563 kPa. Moreover, the data indicates a consistent increase in soil compaction with depth during both experimental seasons. The laboratory test for soil texture revealed that the soil composition was classified as a clay loam, consisting of 36.7% sand, 30.3% clay, and 33% silt. The moisture content ranged from a high of 16.04% to a low of 13.97%. In addition, it was observed that total organic carbon, organic matter, and total nitrogen levels tend to rise with increased soil compaction, and conversely, decrease as soil compaction decreases. This study’s insights are invaluable for agricultural mechanization. Given the substantial weight of farm machinery, comprehending soil properties and their correlation with compaction rates is imperative for optimizing farming practices.

  • Comparative Analysis of the Slope Stability Using Slide and Plaxis 2D
           Software: A Case Study of Tombel Pozzolan Quarry (South-West Cameroon)

    • Abstract: The presented study attempted to use coupled finite element numerical (FEM) and analytical limit equilibrium (LEM) procedures to provide comparative graphical charts demonstrating the geometry, the groundwater condition, the safety factor, and the characteristics of the support, which were implemented in the Dangote Pozzolan quarry at Tombel to preventing the slope instability’s occurrence. Field and laboratory work have been carried out to collect and characterize data. The results obtained with the LEM procedure via Slide 2D showed a safety factor of 0.87, indicating an unstable slope compared to a safety factor of 1.0 obtained with the FEM procedure via Plaxis 2D corresponding to a limited equilibrium state of the slope. The characteristics of the support that can be used to stabilize the slopes are geotextile support of 100% strip coverage, a tensile strength of 100 kN/m, an adhesion property of 4 kPa, and a frictional angle of 40°. The geotextile is anchored at the slope surface. After the support has been introduced, and the new safety factor calculated, the support automatically increased the safety factor value from 0.87 to 1.51 by using Slide 2D and from 1.0 to 1.98 by using Plaxis 2D, which is from an unstable state to a very stable state.

           Tamil Nadu, India

    • Abstract: A hydrogeochemical analysis was conducted to find the suitability of the groundwater for drinking and irrigation purposes in the Kuzhithuraiyar sub-basin, Kanniyakumari district, Tamil Nadu, India. 48 groundwater samples were collected from the different locations of the study area during both the pre- and postmonsoon periods. This study assesses the groundwater quality for drinking and irrigation purposes based on the analytical results, water quality index, Wilcox plot, and irrigation parameters such as electrical conductance, Kelly’s ratio, sodium absorption ratio values, magnesium hazards, bicarbonate, and the residual sodium carbonate index. The pH values ranged from 8.5 to 6.5, suggesting generally acceptable conditions. TDS concentrations range from 24 to 1277 mg/L, whereas EC values range from 37.50 to 1996 μS/cm. It is observed from the collected samples that the pre-monsoon water samples TDS’ values were exceeded the recommended TDS limits than postmonsoon samples. Water quality indices indicate that 50% of premonsoon samples and 48% of postmonsoon samples are suitable for drinking. In total, 10% of samples are admissible to a doubtful category before and after the monsoon, 6% are good to permissible during the monsoon, and 84% are good to permissible. Kelly’s ratio shows that 56% and 48% of samples collected during the post- and premonsoon are suitable for irrigation, respectively, whereas the remaining samples are not. Due to magnesium hazards, 40% and 44% of pre- and postmonsoon samples are not suitable for irrigation. Overall, the postmonsoon samples exceeded the permissible TDS limit (1000 mg/L) by 10% and the premonsoon samples by 6. 13% of samples obtained after the monsoon and 19% collected before the monsoon have a potential salinity greater than three, indicating that these samples are unacceptable. The sustaining water quality and mitigating possible hazards in the Kuzhithuraiyar sub-basin require continuous monitoring and focused measures.

  • Dynamics of Soil Physical and Chemical Properties under Different Current
           Land Use Types and Elevation Gradients in the Sala Watershed of Ari Zone,
           South Ethiopia

    • Abstract: The dynamics of soil physical and chemical properties have been increasing due to inappropriate land use and unsustainable land management practices in Ethiopia. This study aims to assess the dynamics of selected soil physical and chemical properties under different current land use types and altitudinal gradients in the Sala watershed of Ari Zone in South Ethiopia. In the study area, analyzing and understanding the dynamics of soil physicochemical properties under different land use types play a vital role in sustainable soil productivity. Before collecting a soil sample, land use types and altitudinal variations were surveyed in the study watershed. Three random strata were selected from the watershed, and the major adjacent land use types in each stratum were identified across elevation gradients. A total of 30 composite soil samples were collected from different land uses and elevations using a zigzag sampling technique at 0–20 cm soil depth from upland (12), midland (9), and lowland (9). Laboratory results showed that most soil physical and chemical properties had poor ratings in the watershed area. All soil properties were significantly affected by land use types and elevation factors (), except for soil texture, TN, and CEC. Soil texture is highest in the upper and lower elevations of grazing land (61.3%) and shrubland (55.4%), while lowest in cultivated land (11.3%) and barren land (11.6%) at higher altitudes. The highest mean of soil texture was dominated by clay soil (55%) in shrubland followed by sand soil (50.30%) in the barren land and silt soil (20.06%) in cultivated land. Chemical soil properties (pH, SOM, TN, Av. P, Av. K, and CEC) were significantly varied under each land use type across altitudes. The results of this study showed that inappropriate land use and unsustainable agricultural practices had more significantly influenced the soil fertility status. Therefore, appropriate soil and water conservation measures should be implemented in the studied watershed to improve soil fertility and crop productivity.

  • Effect of NPS and Zinc Fertilizer Rates on Growth and Yield of Onion
           (Allium cepa L.) at Shewa Robit, North Shewa, Ethiopia

    • Abstract: Onions, a crucial bulb crop cultivated globally, including in Ethiopia, face significant production challenges. These constraints encompass poor soil fertility, inappropriate fertilizer usage, limited availability of improved varieties, disease and insect pests, and the high costs associated with commercial fertilizers. Among these limitations, improper fertilizer application amounts and types play a pivotal role in restricting onion production. To address this, a field experiment was conducted during the 2020-2021 cropping season in the Shewa Robit district of the North Shewa zone. The study assessed the impact of NPS and Zn fertilizer rates on onion growth and yield. The treatments included four NPS fertilizer rates (0, 121, 242, and 363 kg/ha) and four levels of ZnSO4 (0, 0.25, 0.5, and 0.75% w/v). The experiment was laid out as a randomized complete block design in a factorial arrangement and replicated three times. The results demonstrated that the interaction effect of NPS and Zn fertilizers significantly influenced various onion parameters, including days to maturity, plant height, leaf length, marketable bulb yield, unmarketable bulb yield, and total bulb yield. The application of NPS at a rate of 242 kg/ha and 0.75% ZnSO4 led to the highest plant height (65.20 cm), leaf length (51.93 cm), marketable bulb yield (34.87 t/ha), and total bulb yield (35.04 t/ha). In addition, this treatment combination yielded the highest net benefit (908,628.89 ETB/ha) with an acceptable MRR (313.64%) compared to other treatments. Hence, it can be recommended for economical production of onion in the study area and areas with similar agroecologies.

  • Assessing Microbial Diversity in Páramo Soils (Multistrategy Analysis):
           Effects of Potato Farming and Livestock Grazing in Nevados National
           Natural Park, Colombia

    • Abstract: High Andean Páramos are very fragile neotropical ecosystems. Moreover, biodiversity in these areas is threatened by the anthropic activities of agriculture, cattle raising, and mining and has been little studied. Changes associated with potato farming and livestock grazing on microorganisms of Páramo soil of the Nevados National Natural Park (Nevados NNP) were assessed by (1) determination of physical and chemical properties (physicochemical matrix) and enzymatic activities associated (enzymatic activity matrix) with different biogeochemical cycles (C, N, and P); (2) microbial community functional diversity via evaluation of functional groups associated with carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus cycles using cultivation-dependent techniques (arable functional group matrix and most probable number matrix); and (3) microbial diversity using cultivation-independent techniques that employ the hypervariable V5–V6 region of the 16S rRNA gene and pyrosequencing (16S-454 genus matrix and 16S-454 OTU matrix). Four of the six evaluated matrices (physicochemical, enzymatic activities, most probable number, and arable functional groups) revealed significant differences according to land use. The strategy adopted by the arable functional group matrix, in which the diversity of nitrogen fixation, phosphate solubilization, and cellulolytic compounds was evaluated, showed the most significant impacts of the different factors (land use, season, and elevation), especially those caused by potato cultivation and livestock. These results indicate that the initial impacts of potato farming and livestock grazing on the microbial community in El Bosque Village are better detected by functional diversity analysis than by molecular analysis of the 16S rRNA gene V5–V6 variable region. The results may have been caused by the type of molecular marker used in the analyses and the type of agricultural practices used by peasant farmers, which affect the functional diversity of the soil community. Among these practices are the maintenance of fallow periods greater than 7 years between each potato crop and the small proportion of cattle in relation to the total land area of the village. As the findings can be interpreted as an indicator of the early impacts of potato cultivation and livestock on microbial diversity, the effects of implementing community management plans, applying agroecological models, retaining biocultural memory, and changing agrarian structure are relevant for mitigating future changes.

  • Short-Term Response of Soil Organic Carbon Indices to Different Farming
           Strategies and Crop Rotation Systems in a Semiarid Warm Region

    • Abstract: Several indices can be used to assess the impact of short-term conservation agriculture strategies on improving soil organic carbon (SOC). To find out how the SOC pools and the carbon lability influence the carbon management index (CMI) in response to different agricultural practices in a warm semiarid region, the carbon lability index (LI) and the carbon pool index (CPI) were measured under the interactive effect of different fertilizer applications and crop residue management (hereafter referred to as “farming strategies”) in combination with four crop rotation systems in Ahvaz, Khuzestan, Iran, over four growing seasons from 2018 to 2020. The farming strategies were as follows: (1) using the standard rate of inorganic fertilizer used in the region and removing crop residues from the soil (SIF_no-CR); (2) applying the standard rate of organic fertilizers used in the region and returning 30% of crop residues to the soil (SOF_30% CR); and (3) integrating the use of inorganic and organic fertilizers and returning 15% of crop residues to the soil (IOF_15% CR). The crop rotation systems were fallow-wheat (F-W), corn-wheat (C-W), sesame-wheat (S-W), and mung bean-wheat (B-W). No statistically significant difference was observed between the different farming strategies and rotation systems with respect to LI after two years of the experiment. The highest (1.26) and lowest (1.06) CPIs were observed for SOF_30% CR and SIF_no-CR, respectively. The magnitude of the CMI values followed the order SOF_30% CR (121) > IOF_15% CR (107) ≥ SIF_no-CR (106). B-W and F-W had the highest and lowest CPI with values of 1.29 and 1.01, respectively. No statistically significant difference was found for the different crop rotation systems. Given the low impact of the common farming practices in the region, e.g., SIF_no-CR and F-W, on CPI and CMI at 24 months, our results showed that farming strategies with manure application and crop residue management and summer wheat-based rotation systems appear to be more appropriate farming strategies to improve CMI in arable land.

  • Litterfall-Associated Carbon Deposition and Vertical Profiles of Soil
           Organic Carbon in Different Land-Use Systems

    • Abstract: Litterfall is one of the major inputs for soil nutrients. Understanding the connection of litterfall and soil organic carbon (SOC) as the part of ecological processes is a key step towards carbon sequestration as a climate change mitigation strategy. Yet, it remains inadequate to support by empirical pieces of evidence particularly in tropical ecosystems. In this study, litter traps were used to monitor the monthly organic carbon deposition over a year through litterfall, and soil samples were collected vertically up to 30 cm depth to define the SOC depth distribution in three different land use types located at Wondo Genet district, southern Ethiopia. The results were interpreted by deploying both the carbon stratification ratio (CSR) and carbon flow balance ratio (CFBR) as ecological indicators. The results revealed that both the annual litterfall amount and associated organic carbon input in plantation forest (958.4 ± 112 g·m−2·yr−1; 391.4 ± 112 g·C·m−2·yr−1) were higher than those in the homegarden (183.5.4 ± 26 g·m−2·yr−1; 67.4 ± 10 g·C·m−2·yr−1), conceivably due to few litter contributors (trees) present in the homegarden. The CSR of the homegarden (1.3 ± 0.01) was found between the ratio obtained for crop (1.2 ± 0.01) and plantation forest (1.4 ± 0.01), indicating that it is definitely a combination of pure plantation forest and crop system. The CFBR was higher in plantation forest (3.4 yr−1) than in soil of homegarden (0.77 yr−1), implying the net accumulation of soil carbon over time in the latter system. Hence, homegardens could be considered as a system of climate-smart practice with multiple-biogeochemistry pathways, which simultaneously address the social-absolute needs. Given the current tendency of transforming homegarden agroforestry to monoculture types owing to economical drivers, such indicators can dictate of making rational decisions related to land use planning and soil fertility management.

  • Sand Improvement by Surface Percolation Method Using Urease-Containing
           Substance Extracted from Soybean Seed

    • Abstract: Background. In recent decades, the microbial and plant-derived urease have been used for sand stabilization by the calcium carbonate precipitation method, especially with Sporosarcina pasteurii. However, calcium carbonate precipitation using plant-derived urease has received less attention. Purchasing the extracted and purified commercially available plant-derived urease for the sand improvement is costly. The plant-derived urease-containing crude extract (enzyme substance) is cheaper than purified (commercial) urease. In the present study, the feasibility of sand improvement by enzyme-induced calcium carbonate precipitation method was investigated with urease-containing crude extract (extracted from soybean). Methods. The distilled water, instead of phosphate buffer, was used to provide the main enzyme extraction medium. Also, the effects of temperature, time, and dilution on the activity of the urease-containing crude extract by the electrical conductivity meter were investigated. Results. The results showed that the extraction temperature had a significant effect on the behavior of the enzymes, and according to the results, the temperature range between 19 and 25°C is suitable for the enzyme extraction. The four-layer surface percolation method was used to improve the sand, and 0.75 equimolar (eqM) concentration of urea-CaCl2 cementation solution is suitable for sand improvement using the UCE extracted from soybean seed. Conclusion. Silica sand was successfully improved by the EICP method using the four-layer surface percolation method, and significant unconfined compressive strength and elasticity modulus were obtained. XRD and XRF analysis also confirmed the successful precipitation of calcium carbonate between the sand particles.

  • Bioremediation of Oil-Contaminated Soils of the Zhanazhol Deposit from
           West Kazakhstan by Pseudomonas mendocina H-3

    • Abstract: The culture of Pseudomonas mendocina H-3 was selected as the microorganism for oil destruction, and its effect on oil-contaminated soil from the Zhanazhol deposit in West Kazakhstan was studied. After conducting model laboratory experiments, field experiments were carried out. Six and twelve months after the treatment of the oil-contaminated field with microorganisms, the amount of oil fractions in the soil decreased noticeably, while the content of asphaltenes remained constant. Analyses show that the composition of the oil fraction changes—the concentration of paraffin-naphthenic—polycycloaromatic components decreases, whereas the relative amount of mono- and bicycloaromatic hydrocarbons increases. The results of the efficiency assessment showed that the use of Pseudomonas mendocina H-3 cell suspension in natural conditions leads to a decrease in the content of hydrocarbons in the soil from 55 to 70%. The lower efficiency of bioremediation with cell cultures in field experiments (on average, 61%) compared with laboratory model studies (reduction of oil content to 79%) is apparently associated with climatic conditions.

  • Influence of Rice Husk Biochar and Its Application Methods on Silicon
           Dynamics and Rice Yield in Sandy-Loam Soil

    • Abstract: Rice husk biochar (RHB) is a potential source of available silicon in paddy soil and an ecologically responsive soil amendment for sustainable rice production. The study tested the influence of RHB application methods on rice growth, rice yield, and silicon dynamics in sandy loam soil in a pot experiment. RHB was applied at 5 tons ha−1 as a localized-spot-application (LSA) or top-mixed-application (TMA) with the soil at the upper 7 cm or whole-mixed-application (WMA) within 20 cm of the soil column and at 10 tons ha−1 in the TMA and WMA methods and was compared with a control (CTRL) without biochar. Seedlings of the Koshihikari rice variety were transplanted in each pot, and all treatments were replicated thrice. Compared to the CTRL, the LSA and TMA methods did not influence the mean porewater silicon concentration at the vegetative and reproductive stages. However, the WMA method applied at 5 tons ha−1 increased () the mean porewater silicon concentration by 12.3 and 39.5% at the vegetative and reproductive stages, respectively, while at 10 tons ha−1, the respective increase was by 26.1 and 32.7%. All biochar application methods at the 5 tons ha−1 rate increased the rice grain yield () by 21.2% (LSA), 11.3% (TMA), and 47.2% (WMA) compared to the CTRL. Conversely, at 10 tons ha−1, the yield was reduced by 18% in the TMA method, attributable to the immobilization of nitrogen and adsorption of nutrients to biochar surfaces. Our results proved that the choice of biochar application method and rate of application significantly influenced the dissolution of silicon in the porewater, leading to a higher silicon uptake and consequently a higher grain yield. This study provides valuable insights for agricultural practices aiming to enhance silicon dynamics in paddy soil and sustainable rice yield using RHB.

  • Effect of Eucalyptus globulus Plantations on Soil Physicochemical
           Properties in the Upper Blue Nile, Ethiopia

    • Abstract: In recent years, there has been a substantial conversion of croplands and grasslands to short rotation Eucalyptus globulus plantations in the northern highlands of Ethiopia. This has raised concerns among researchers, policymakers, and environmentalists regarding potential adverse effects on soil fertility. To address these concerns, a study was conducted to evaluate the impact of Eucalyptus globulus plantations on selected soil physicochemical properties in the region. The study involved four land-use types, comprising two age groups of Eucalyptus globulus plantations (4-year-old and 9-year-old), as well as areas designated for grasslands and croplands. Soil sampling was carried out in 10 m × 10 m subplots within each experimental plot, and standard methods were employed for soil analysis. The soil laboratory results were statistically analyzed using Two-way ANOVA and Pearson’s correlation coefficients in R software version 4.1.0. The findings revealed significant variations () in soil bulk density, soil organic carbon, and soil -year-old and 9-year-old Eucalyptus globulus plantations and the grasslands. A notable difference () in exchangeable acidity was observed between the 4-year-old and 9-year-old E. globulus plantations, with the latter exhibiting the highest mean exchangeable acidity (6.20 ± 0.76). However, no significant differences () were observed between the Eucalyptus plantations and the grasslands in available phosphorus (Av.P), exchangeable calcium (Ca2+), sodium (Na+), and magnesium (Mg2+) concentrations, as well as cation exchange capacity (CEC). The study results has, therefore, implied that Eucalyptus globulus plantations induced changes in specific soil properties with varying stand ages in the study area. Nonetheless, it was emphasized that further long-term research is necessary to comprehend the effects of these plantations on soil properties.

  • Quantifying Soil Erosion in Drought-Impacted Central Odisha, India,
           through Geospatial Mapping with RUSLE

    • Abstract: Soil degradation in Odisha poses a significant conservation concern for the local environment. The present research focused on a region in central Odisha State, India, affected by drought conditions. Several models have emerged to assess soil loss, with the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) standing out as the most suitable option. The erosion computation process entails utilizing the digital elevation model (DEM), Landsat-9 imagery, and soil data from several sources accessible in different forms and scales. The present analysis took into account various elements, namely, crop management factor (C), practice management factor (P), slope length factor (LS), steepness factor of the slope (S), and rainfall factor (R). Multiplying these factors yielded the average rate of soil erosion. Areas with a high slope length factor, such as those in Kandhamal, Kalahandi, and Nuapada, have a high erosion rate. The study reveals that 57% of the land in the study area experiences very low to moderate soil erosion at a rate of 2–10 tons per hectare per year, while 43% faces moderately to very severe erosion at a rate of 10–25 tons per hectare per year. Erosion hotspots, covering 32,205 square kilometers, are mainly identified in agricultural and forested hilly areas where slopes exceed 10°, such as those in Kandhamal, Kalahandi, and Nuapada, which have a high erosion rate. These districts are especially vulnerable to soil loss and resulting climate action (Sustainable Development Goals-13) because of frequent and severe rainfall, shifting agricultural practices, a thin surface soil covering, natural erosion, and barren hills. The research emphasizes the urgent need for implementing conservation and management measures to protect high-risk areas from further degradation. In conclusion, the study underscores the effectiveness of the RUSLE-GIS model in conducting quantitative and spatial assessments of soil erosion on a river watershed scale. The model is deemed crucial in formulating conservation strategies to address the identified erosion issues in the tropical highlands of the area.

  • Quantifying the Effect of Soil Ameliorants on Soil Crusting by Means of
           Field Experiments in a Wildlife Protected Area, South Africa

    • Abstract: Soil crusting (surface sealing) is widespread and serious in ecotouristic game parks and reserves in southern Africa, and especially South Africa. In this study, mineral soil crusts were found to be the problem in the Dinokeng Game Reserve (DGR), South Africa. Large areas of bare soil crusted areas were found in this reserve. The cause of this crusting was found to be historical agricultural practices such as cultivation with maize on non-arable soils and overgrazing by cattle. Negative impacts of soil crusting include reduction of water infiltration, leading to increased runoff and erosion and induced drought; inhibiting soil aeration; inhibiting germination and seedling emergence; and inhibiting root functioning and development. In this study in the DGR, a bare crusted area, where cultivation was abandoned 50 years before and there has been no recovery to rangeland since then, was selected for a field trial to determine the effectiveness of the application of various soil ameliorants on soil crust alleviation and improvement of water infiltration rate. The following ameliorants were evaluated: polyacrylamide (PAM) at levels of 5 and 20 kg/ha, gypsum at 2.5 t/ha, and molasses meal at 5 t/ha, as well as combinations of PAM and molasses meal, PAM and gypsum and gypsum and molasses meal. Brush packing, without any ameliorant applied, was also included as treatment, as well as a control with no treatments. PAM treatments increased final infiltration rate (FIR) by between 100–206%. The high efficacy of the lowest PAM treatment is at a cost of only USD 15 per hectare economically important. On the studied soil gypsum application reduced FIR by 81%, while molasses meal had minimal effect. These ameliorants can therefore not be recommended on such soil.

  • Age of Soil and Water Conservation Practices on Selected Soil Properties
           along the Toposequence of Gerado Watershed, Habru District, Eastern
           Amhara, Ethiopia

    • Abstract: The government of Ethiopia through community participation has widely implemented soil and water conservation (SWC) measures, especially in the highlands of Ethiopia. However, the effects of these practices on the physicochemical properties of soils have not been well assessed and documented in the study area. Thus, this experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of SWC practice on selected soil physicochemical properties. Treatments were nonconserved land, 3- and 9-year-old soil conservation practices under three slope positions, namely, lower slope (0–8%), middle slope (9–15%), and upper slope (>15%) positions, and at two soil depths (0–20 and 20–40 cm) with three replications. Accordingly, 54 composite soil samples were collected and analyzed based on standard procedures. The results showed that the age of soil and water conservation practice, topography, and soil depths significantly affected most of the soil properties. Conserving the watershed for nine years improved the subsoil clay content from 37.1 to 46.3%, subsoil soil moisture content from 13.38 to 24.61%, surface total nitrogen content from 18.1 to 81%, available phosphorus content from 13.1 to 33.5 mg kg−1, surface organic carbon from 0.28 to 2.83%, soil carbon stock from 9.26 to 35.59 t ha−1, and surface cation exchange capacity from 21.5 to 57.4 Cmolec kg−1. Therefore, maintaining soil and water conservation practices for long periods can improve soil properties. However, planting different grasses, with the existing physical structures is needed to increase soil nutrient and carbon stock.

  • Examining the Effect of Combined Biochar and Lime Rates on Selected Soil
           Physicochemical Properties of Acid Soils in Gimbi District, Western
           Ethiopia

    • Abstract: The physicochemical properties of Western Ethiopian soils were negatively threatened with continuous cultivation crop lands. Soil amendments with biochar and lime facilitate and improve soil physicochemical properties directly and indirectly and enhance crop productivity. A field experiment was conducted in Gimbi District, Western Ethiopia, to examine the effects of combined coffee husk biochar (CHB) and soil test value-based lime (STV) rate application on physicochemical properties of acid soils. The trial included eight treatments, including control, 100% STV, 10 ton of CHB, and CHB + STV rates at 10 ton + 75%, 10 ton + 50%, 7.5 ton + 75%, 7.5 ton + 50%, and 5 ton + 75% ha−1on two farm fields. The fields were laid out in RCBD with three replications. The treatments had substantial effects on ) on the soil’s physicochemical characteristics. The application of biochar and lime in Farms-1 and 2 reduced soil BD from 1.21 and 1.41 g·cm−3 to 1.15 and 1.12 to 0.90 and 0.97 g·cm−3, respectively. The soil pH level was increased from 5.10 to a range of 5.58 to 6.11 in Farm-1, and in Farm-2, from 4.64 to a range of 4.64 to 6.22 levels. The application of 10 ton of CHB + 75% of STV in Farms-1 and 2 resulted in the highest SOC of 7.44% and 7.68%, respectively. The application of 10 ton of CHB + 75% of STV in Farms-1 and 2 resulted in 4.86 mg·kg−1 and 6.96 mg·kg−1 available P, respectively. Available P was positively correlated with pH (0.62), SOC (0.63), and CEC (0.66). Exchangeable acidity was decreased from 4.64 cmol(+)kg−1 to a range from 3.19 to 0.98 cmol(+)kg−1 in Farm-1 and from 5.00 cmol(+)kg−1 to a range from 3.38 to 1.10 cmol(+)kg−1 in Farm-2. Therefore, amending the strongly acidic to very strongly acidic soil with a combined CHB (7.5 to 10 ton ha−1) and STV (50 to 75% ha−1) rates had improved the soil physicochemical properties of agricultural lands. To make a firm conclusion, research on soil analysis after crop harvest and economic benefit is required.

  • Olericulture No-Till System at Mountain Region: Physical and Biological
           Attributes of the Soil

    • Abstract: The production of vegetables and grains by the family farming in the mountains of the Atlantic Forest is characterized by intensive soil management with ploughing and harrowing practices. These practices are promoting hydric erosion and losses of soil quality in the region. In this context, the objective of this work was to evaluate soil physical and biological characteristics at two seasons of the year in agroecosystems producing vegetables and grains in the no-tillage system (NTS) for 3, 5, and 9 years compared to the conventional management system (CT) in the Atlantic Forest Biome, Brazil. Physical and organic matter attributes and carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) stock were evaluated. NTS showed, in general, greater total porosity than CT systems. The main differences between the systems were found in the organic attributes and C and N stocks. The content of microbial biomass C in NTS with 3, 5, and 9 years was 767.5, 326.5, and 210.0 mg·kg−1, while the areas with CT had 93.75, 78.25, and 45.75 mg·kg−1, respectively. The stock of C in winter at the 9NTS area was 33.0 and 41.5 Mg·ha−1, and the respective area in CT presented only 21.75 and 25.00 Mg·ha−1 in the depths of 0–10 and 10–20 cm, respectively. The metabolic quotient of the NTS areas did not differ from the reference ecosystems and is promoting lower C-CO2 emissions than the CT system. The adoption of NTS in vegetable production improves soil quality in family farm areas of mountains relief at the Atlantic Forest Biome.

  • Reuse of Sewage Sludge as Organic Agricultural Products: An Efficient
           Technology-Based Initiative

    • Abstract: Rapid urbanisation has led to a dramatic increase in sewage sludge production. There are limited methods of managing sewage sludge along with high energy and monetary investment. A cost-effective, environment-friendly, and sustainable solution needs to be developed for the management of sewage sludge. In the current study, sludge from the Jagjeetpur sewage treatment plant (STP) had been collected, composted, and characterized during January and February 2022. A comparison of STP sludge compost and compost made from farmyard manure showed the presence of essential agricultural nutrients in them, due to which they find application for plant growth. Two products, Jaivik Poshak and Jaivik Prom, containing farmyard compost, were compared with the amended version of the same, containing compost from STP sludge instead of normal compost. The results showed that the modified Jaivik Poshak was the best for maintaining pH and increasing electrical conductivity. The available nitrogen in the soil upon its application increased by 1.6 times () with respect to control, and it brought about 100% tomato seed germination within sixteen days. The above finding has been validated by goodness of fit value, factor analysis, and hierarchical analysis. The product, modified Jaivik Prom increased organic carbon content and brought about 5.81 and 8 times the enhancement in available phosphorous () and potassium () content in soil, respectively, with respect to the control set. The heavy metal content in the soil as a result of all types of treatment was within the permissible limit. This study thus proves that sludge from STP may be used for agricultural uses after proper fortification and testing to convert waste to wealth along with environmental sustenance.

  • Evaluation of Activated Carbons Prepared from Bioprecursors for the
           Removal of Cadmium and Chromium (VI)

    • Abstract: Trace metals found in industrial effluents are highly toxic pollutants, and these include cadmium and chromium (VI). The objective of this work is to remove cadmium and chromium (VI) on activated carbons, prepared from biomaterials such as nuclei of Ziziphus lotus and coffee grounds. The characterization of adsorbents was performed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The results of the characterization showed an important porosity on the activated carbon’s surface, with sizes between 6 and 50 μm. Similarly, the adsorption results showed that the adsorption process is very rapid and that the increase in contact time and temperature improves the efficiency of the Cd and Cr(VI) removal process. Indeed, abatement rates (R%) of 80% for Cr(VI) and 60% for Cd were obtained after 80 minutes of adsorption on activated carbon prepared from Ziziphus lotus, whereas activated carbon obtained from coffee grounds allows a reduction rate of about 50% for Cr(VI) and Cd. Hence, it seems clearly that the activated carbon of Ziziphus lotus is more effective than that of coffee grounds, especially for the Cr(VI) adsorption. The kinetic modeling of the adsorption process followed the pseudo-second-order model, and the Freundlich model has better explained the adsorption isotherm for Cd and Cr(VI). The thermodynamic study showed that adsorption was spontaneous and endothermic.

  • Soil Physicochemical Properties Variation under Annual Crop and Coffee
           Landuse in the Chentale Watershed, Upper Blue Nile Basin, Ethiopia

    • Abstract: A detrimental decline in soil fertility has been attributed to losses in arable land productivity in Ethiopia. In this line, several studies were conducted to enable informed decisions; however, monitoring soil property dynamics in different biophysical, climatic, and cropping systems is yet to be adequate to support and influence decision and policymakers. To this end, this study evaluated soil physicochemical properties on land managed for annual crops and coffee land use in the Chentale watershed, the upper Blue Nile basin, Ethiopia. About 24 soil samples were collected from the two land uses and soil depths (topsoil: 0–15 cm and subsoil: 15–30 cm) with 6 replications for soil properties analysis. The result showed that most of the soil parameters varied significantly with land uses and were higher with coffee landuse () than with cropland. Furthermore, a neutral pH range, clay loam texture, medium level of organic matter (3.93%) and nitrogen (0.18%), high level of available phosphorus (23.35 PPM), and high to very high level of exchangeable base were recorded from coffee landuse than from cropland. Whereas the mean values of organic matter (OM) and total nitrogen (TN) decreased significantly () decreased in the subsoil. However, most of the physical and chemical properties of the soil did not vary significantly with depth. Moreover, low pH, low OM content, and low TN are the main properties of soil considered constraints of soil fertility in cropland at both depths. Therefore, it is recommended to maintain agroforestry practices, reduce the intensity of tilling, and supply organic materials to sustain the productivity of cropland.

  • Management of Alternative Organic Fertilizer Sources for Wheat Production:
           Evidence from Decomposition Dynamics and Agronomic, Economic, and
           Farmers’ Preferences

    • Abstract: The increasing cost of mineral fertilizer has posed a barrier for smallholder farmers, resulting in lower application rates, declined soil fertility status, and crop yield. Therefore, it is vital to look for cheap, impactful, and locally accessible organic fertilizer sources. Thus, two-year on-farm studies were conducted to evaluate potential organic fertilizer sources based on their decomposition dynamics and agronomic, economic, and farmer preference responses. The organic fertilizer sources used were dried tree leaves of Croton macrostachyus (Cm) and Erythrina bruci (Eb) and farm yard manure (FYM) and their mixture at ratios of 1 : 1:0, 2 : 1:0, and 1 : 1:1 Cm : Eb : FYM, respectively. The organic materials were buried using litter bags at 5 tons ha−1 rate in the crop field and retrieved at the weeks of two (14 days), four (28 days), six (42 days), and eight (56 days) after placement. Data were collected that included dry mass (DM) remaining, daily decomposition rate (k), and half-life (t1/2). Furthermore, to validate the findings of litter bag trials, the mixture of three organic fertilizer sources [1 : 1 : 0, 2 : 1 : 0, and 1 : 1 : 1 of Cm : Eb : FYM] and four application times (two, four, six, and eight weeks before sowing) were evaluated on bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) as a test crop in factorial randomized complete block design in a factorial arrangement with three replications. Data on agronomic, economic, and farmers’ preferences were recorded. The result revealed an increased weight loss over 56 days in the order of 2 : 1 : 0 > 1 : 1 : 0 > 1 : 1 : 1. The k value significantly () varied among organic fertilizer sources. The k value (% day−1) in 2013 varied between 3.42% and 0.023%, whereas in 2014, it was 3.10% and 0.23% for Cm and FYM, respectively. The k value was in the order of Cm > 2 : 1 : 0 > 1 : 1 : 0 > Eb > 1 : 1 : 1 > FYM. Applying organic fertilizers two weeks before sowing significantly improved wheat performance compared to applications made eight weeks prior. For example, the mean grain yield was 4.1 tons ha−1 and 2.6 tons·ha−1 at two and eight weeks before sowing, respectively. Although there were no statistically significant differences among the mixed sources, the 2 : 1 and 1 : 1 over 1 : 1 : 1 proportion have resulted in a higher grain yield. Farmers showed the highest preference rank for 2 Cm : 1 Eb and 1 Cm : 1 Eb, incorporated two weeks before sowing. The partial budget analysis demonstrated the highest net benefit from applying two weeks before sowing and 2 Cm : 1 Eb organic material mixture. Considering the findings generated from the decomposition test, agronomic and economic evaluations, and farmers’ preferences, we could conclude that the wheat growers should use 2 Cm : 1 Eb and incorporate it into the soil two weeks before sowing.

  • Physicochemical Characterisation of Water and Sediment of the
           Semimechanized Artisanal Gold Mining Environment of the Béké Locality

    • Abstract: This paper aims to investigate the level of pollution of water, sediment, and soil due to semimechanized artisanal gold mining in Béké, Adamawa region of Cameroon. For this purpose, water and sediment samples were collected and analyzed. In order to achieve this goal, several research studies and field observations were carried out. Questionnaires were also used to complement field investigations. All these enabled the identification of the potential sources of impacts on the human, physical, and biological environment. Three soil samples (S1, S5, and S7) were collected on the same spot with the water sample and analyzed to assess the intensity of soil contamination. The water samples (W1–S9) were characterized physically, chemically, and microbiologically to evaluate the water quality contamination. The results of the physicochemical analysis of the water samples showed that the rivers in this zone are moderately acidic (with pH values ranging from 5.11 to 6.37) and slightly mineralized (with sample W2 collected from the Béké river having an iron concentration of 6.7 g/L). The pattern of mean trace metal concentration in sediments was Fe > Mn > Cr > Pb > Cu > Zn. According to pollution indices, the contamination degree (CD) varied from 4.03 to 4.56 corresponding to low contamination. The index of ecological risk () for all the trace metals was low ( ≤ 40) and the geoaccumulation index (Igeo) ranged between uncontaminated and moderately contaminated (Igeo 0-1). The result of our field investigations and analysis shows that the semimechanized artisanal gold mining in the locality of Béké has very significant environmental consequences such as land degradation, deforestation, water pollution, and landscape modification.

  • Health and Characteristics of Australian Apple Growing Soils

    • Abstract: Despite being the highest value fruit crop in Australia, little is known about the types and condition or “health” of Australia’s apple growing soils. This study is unique in being the first to report the condition and characteristics of Australia’s apple growing soils; it provides essential baseline data for future monitoring of soil health in apple production systems, as well as soil physical and chemical data required for the development of perennial soil-tree-climate models. Soil chemical and physical properties were measured at 34 orchards, across five states. Soils were assessed for water retention, hydraulic conductivity, bulk density, macroporosity, organic carbon, CEC, ESP, pH, and EC. Despite high to very high levels of organic carbon, most topsoils were moderately to poorly structured. Around one-third to half of all sites showed evidence of poor aeration or impeded drainage, whilst 10 of the 34 sites were prone to nutrient leaching. Plant available soil water (PAWC) varied greatly between sites from 31 mm to 170 mm from 0 to 60 cm depth and between sites within the same soil order. Whilst topsoils had high to very high levels of organic carbon (average: 2.46%), they were otherwise poorly structured, with higher than expected bulk density (average: 1.32 g/cm3) and lower than expected air capacity (average: 9.97%) and macroporosity (average: 1.75%). Subsoils were also found to have little soil water availability (average: 15.39 mm/100 mm), low air capacity (average: 5.28%), and low CEC (average: 8.12 cmol (+) kg−1). Notably, 10 of the 34 sites had less than 6 cmol (+) kg−1 CEC throughout the entire soil profile, indicating potential risk of nutrient leaching. This study indicates that apple growing soils require careful management to improve topsoil structure, and to maintain or increase soil carbon, as well as use of soil moisture sensors to schedule irrigation. In addition, some sites also require improved subsoil drainage and care to ensure fertigation and irrigation do not result in leaching of nutrients beneath the root zone.
