Cadmium, lead and copper in soil and pasture herbage after five years of application of sewage sludge

Cadmium, lead and copper in soil and pasture herbage after five years of application of sewage sludge

Bedrijfsontwikkeling 14(1): 41-44

Permanent grassland on sandy soil was given 0, 6, 12 or 18 t sewage sludge/ha annually in 1973-7 and N was applied at 0, 30, 60 and 90 kg N/ha per cut. The sludge contained 315 mg Cd, 1130 mg Pb and 1430 mg Cu/kg DM; most of this remained in the top 5 cm of soil and very little penetrated to the 15-25 cm soil layer. An increase in Cd in the topsoil from 0.6 to 40 mg/kg increased the av. Cd content of herbage from 0.2 to 2.2 mg/kg DM.
