Effect of different methods of sugarcane trash recycling. Part 1: on available nitrogen, phosphorus and potash

Effect of different methods of sugarcane trash recycling. Part 1: on available nitrogen, phosphorus and potash

International Journal of Tropical Agriculture 8(4): 249-255

The effect of different methods of recycling sugarcane trash (burning or mixing with soil) on soil available N, P and K was studied. Burning the trash had no effect. The amount of trash mixed with the soil, the depth of mixing and trash fineness (finely ground, 5 cm and 15 cm chopped) influenced available N, P and K. Available N decreased and available K increased with an increase in the amount of trash added.
