Losses of water and nutrients in a cacao plantation in southern Bahia, Brazil

Losses of water and nutrients in a cacao plantation in southern Bahia, Brazil

Revista Brasileira de Ciencia do Solo 8(3): 337-343

In a cacao plantation of 3.13 ha, located on a Typic Tropudalf hillside in Southern Bahia, surface and subsurface runoff were measured. Water samples were collected monthly and analysed for Ca, Mg, Na, K, N and P. Subsurface runoff varied from 0.1 to 62%, and surface runoff ranged from 0 to 1.1% of the rainfall, depending on soil infiltration capacity, topographic features, quantity and duration of the rainfall and soil moisture conditions before a storm.
