Excellent agricultural soils after surface mining

Excellent agricultural soils after surface mining

Mining Engineering 40(11): 1044-1047

Successful soil construction involves preparation of an adequate base, selection of high quality soil materials, and placement of those materials by means which will establish a continuous macropore network and modest to low soil strength. Where such has been accomplished, experiments reveal row crop productivity on reclaimed land which is very competitive with that on undisturbed land.
