Vegetative restoration of pyritic soils

, : Vegetative restoration of pyritic soils. Proceedings 1983 Symposium on Surface Mining, Hydrology, Sedimentology and Reclamation: 271-282

A comprehensive field experiment was established on an acid pyritic soil. Soil amendments included combinations of fine and coarse limestone to pH 5.5, rock phosphate (6.5 mt/ha) and chicken manure (78 mt/ha). Acid tolerant plant species of Kentucky-31 tall fescue, Sericea lespedeza, Weeping lovegrass and Pensacola bahiagrass were seeded across the plots.
