Bauxite residue (red mud) improves pasture growth on sandy soils in Western Australia


Australian Journal of Soil Research 34(4): 569-581
Bauxite residue (red mud) improves pasture growth on sandy soils in Western Australia
The effect of bauxite residues (red mud) on pasture growth and uptake of heavy metals was evaluated. Red mud, either untreated or treated with gypsum, was applied at rates of 0, 10, 20, 40, and 80 t/ha to a subterranean clover (Trifolium subterraneum) and ryegrass (Lolium rigidum) hay paddock. Plant growth, and nutrient and heavy metal composition of the plant tops, were measured.
