Effect of dolomite on soil reaction and nutrient availability in tea soils

, : Effect of dolomite on soil reaction and nutrient availability in tea soils. Sri Lanka Journal of Tea Science 61(1): 4-14

Laboratory incubation studies were carried out to investigate the effect of incorporating different levels of dolomite in soils collected from different tea growing districts of Sri Lanka on soil pH, availability of Mg, Al and K. The results showed that the change in soil pH and the release of available Mg in the soil varied significantly with the levels of dolomite used, time of incubation and the type of soils.
