Effect of sewage sludge applications on heavy metal concentrations of Lithuanian soils



Effect of sewage sludge applications on heavy metal concentrations of Lithuanian soils



Landbauforschung Volkenrode 45(1): 1-3



The application of sewage sludge (8 t/ha DM) on sandy agricultural soils in the Vilnius (Lithuania) area had no significant effects on heavy metal concn in soils, cereals and groundwater. A considerable higher application of sewage sludge (250 t/ha DM) for reclamation of a gravel-pit increased organic matter concn in the topsoil. However, the increase of heavy metal concn is not advisable for agricultural use.
