Short-term variations of soil physical properties as a function of the amounts and C/N ratio of decomposing cotton residues. II. Soil compressibility, water retention and hydraulic conductivity



Short-term variations of soil physical properties as a function of the amounts and C/N ratio of decomposing cotton residues. II. Soil compressibility, water retention and hydraulic conductivity



Soil and Tillage Research 32(2-3): 199-212



Temporal changes in soil bulk density, compressibility and hydraulic properties were examined as affected by the amounts of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) residues and C:N ratios, at 25 degrees C and a soil water content of 0.18 +or-0.01 g/g. All the measured properties showed the same trend indicating a transient 'flush' of activity between the first and sixth week of incubation, with a sharp maximum (or minimum) in the third week.
