In greenhouse experiments on latosolic soil of pH 4.8, containing 2.23% organic matter 3.5% active Fe and low in base saturation, CaCO2application markedly increased soil pH, decreased water-soluble Fe and Mn after 6 weeks' submergence, and increased grain and straw yields by 27 and 23%, respectively, at the 5 ton/ha rate. CaSiO5 had no effect on yields or soil chemistry.
