Long-term application of animal slurries to grassland alters soil cation balance



Long-term application of animal slurries to grassland alters soil cation balance



Soil Use and Management 21(2): 240-244



Soil samples from a 32-year grassland field experiment were taken from 0-5, 5-10, and 10-15 cm soil depths in February 2002. Plots received annual treatments of unamended control, mineral fertilizer, three rates of pig slurry and three rates of cow slurry, each with six replicates. Samples were analysed for cation exchange capacity (CEC), exchangeable cations (Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+), pH and Olsen P. Exchangeable sodium percentage (ESP) was calculated as a sodicity indicator.
