Changes in soil fertility and plant uptake of nutrients and heavy metals in response to sewage sludge application to calcareous soils



Changes in soil fertility and plant uptake of nutrients and heavy metals in response to sewage sludge application to calcareous soils



Journal of Agronomy 3(3): 229-236



Pot experiment was conducted to evaluate the response of lettuce to application of sewage sludge (SS) to calcareous soils. The following treatments were investigated zero SS application (control), 20, 40, 80 and 160 tonnes SS ha-1. Additional treatment (80 kg P2O5 ha-1) as diammonium phosphate (DAP) was included to represent the recommendation rate. Lettuce was grown for 8 weeks then the plant dry and fresh weights were recorded.
