Effect of split application of liming amendments on grain yield and chemical properties of an acid lateritic soil

Effect of split application of liming amendments on grain yield and chemical properties of an acid lateritic soil

Journal of the Indian Society of Soil Science 33(4): 865-869

On an acid Ultisol of Orissa, the grain yield of maize as influenced by single and split application of lime sludge from the paper mill were compared with those obtained with equivalent doses of CaCO3. Both sources were identical in their effect on grain yield. Paper mill sludge applied at 0.5 lime requirement (LR) dose in two splits (once as basal and the second at 25 days of growth) was superior to no-lime control and was at par with higher doses of both the amendments. Even with 0.25 LR dose, the exchangeable Al content of the soil was reduced to zero and the exchange acidity to nearly 10% of the untreated soil at harvest of the crop. It is expected that the split application could ensure the available P supply over a longer period of time, bring about better residual effect by reducing leaching loss of lime and avoid the hazards of overliming the light textured soil.
