Effect of sewage effluent on the content of heavy metals in soil, the growth and nutrition of maize



Effect of sewage effluent on the content of heavy metals in soil, the growth and nutrition of maize



El estudio del suelo y de su degradacion en relacion con la desertificacion Actas del 12 Congreso Latinoamericano de la Ciencia del Suelo, Salamanca, Sevilla Espana 19 a 26 de Septiembre de 1993: 1776-1783



Sewage sludge was applied to the soil at rates of 0, 10, 30, 50 and 80 t/ha combined with soil fumigation and inoculation of mycorrhizal fungi in order to evaluate heavy metal availability, maize growth and the effect of VAM fungi. Zinc, Cu, and Mn content of soil increased with sludge application but no toxic level was detected. Sludge had little influence on the content of Pb and Cd in soil or plants.
