The effect of oil pollution of soil on germination, growth and nutrient uptake of corn

Journal of Environmental Quality 4(4): 537-540

The effect of oil pollution of soil on germination, growth and nutrient uptake of corn

On a ferruginous tropical soil germination and yields were drastically reduced as the level of pollution increased. At 4.2% crude oil pollution level, the average reductions were 50% and 92% in germination and yield, respectively. The amount of organic C, total N, and exchangeable K, Fe, and Mn increased in the soil with level of crude oil addition, while extractable P, NO3-N, and exchangeable Ca were reduced.
