Experiments were carried out in which the density and the water, cation-exchange and nutrient-binding capacities were determined for FYM, high- and low-moor peat, straw, bark refuse, urea formaldehyde foam and polystyrene foam, and the changes in physical and chemical properties were recorded when these were mixed with soil. Inorganic N formation occurred only with urea formaldehyde foam. Compared with FYM, the K and P soil levels were very low with the other organic manures.
