Preliminary results from spray irrigating domestic sewage effluent under Pinus radiata at Waitangi Forest



Preliminary results from spray irrigating domestic sewage effluent under Pinus radiata at Waitangi Forest



Water and Soil Miscellaneous Publication (69): 63-84



In October 1981, trials to evaluate the spray irrigation of domestic sewage into Pinus radiata forests were set up on two sites at Paihia. One site with a clay soil on a moderately steep slope received 25 mm effluent/week, the other, a basalt soil on flat ground, received 25 or 50 mm effluent/week. After 21 months of irrigation, effects on tree growth were small but positive. No leaching of phosphorus was detected.
