Digested sewage sludge for soil improvement

Digested sewage sludge for soil improvement

Conn. agric. Exp. Sta. Bull, 622: 30

Sludge improves the physical condition of soils. Most sludges contain considerable amounts of Zn, Cu and B. In acid soils, sludge is often toxic to plants, and toxicity can be prevented by raising the pH to 6 or more. Sewage sludge generally delayed seed germination; addition of woodchips or sawdust improves germination and plant growth.
