  • No evidence that Bacillus Thuringiensis genes and their products influence the susceptibility of corn residue to decomposition

    The possibility that Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) corn (Zea mays L.) residues resist decomposition compared to non-Bt residues would present direct (soil carbon turnover times) and indirect (changes in tillage practices) effects on carbon budgets in agricultural systems. We evaluated the relative decomposition of residue from two pairs of Bt and non-Bt corn hybrids from different seed ...

  • Matrix-based fertilizers reduce nutrient and bacterial leaching after manure application in a greenhouse column study

    Received for publication November 7, 2008. We tested the efficacy of matrix-based fertilizers (MBFs) to reduce Escherichia coli and Enterococcus spp., NH4, NO3, dissolved reactive phosphorus (DRP), and total phosphorus (TP) in leachate and soil after dairy manure application in greenhouse column studies. The MBFs are composed of inorganic N and P in compounds that are relatively loosely bound ...

  • Why Grasspave2 Uses Sand Based Root Zones

    Since 1982, Invisible Structures, Inc. has manufactured Grasspave2 porous paving system. Often, ISI sales staff is asked why sand is used in the Grasspave2 structure, instead of soils or organic additives mixed with the sand. Grasspave 2 utilizes a sand based root zone because it provides excellent drainage, resist compaction and provide strength where soil systems prove inadequate. Sand as a ...

  • Urban Tree & Planter Backfill Custom Blends for Stability, Porosity, and Water Holding

    Urban trees have a very difficult environment in which to try to thrive and grow to maturity. In addition to heavier concentrations of vehicle exhaust, higher ambiant air temperatures, reflected heat from building glass, and sometimes higher wind velocities from nearby skyscrapers, the most aggrevating conditions usually relate to the root zone growing medium, especially the common lack of ...

  • Soil CO2 efflux in uneven-aged managed forests: temporal patterns following harvest and effects of edaphic heterogeneity

    AbstractForest management is expected to influence soil CO2 efflux (FCO2) as a result of changes in microclimatic conditions, soil properties, and root dynamics. We measured FCO2 during the growing seasons of 2003 and 2004 in both gap and non-gap locations within stands ranging from 0 to 10 years after the most recent harvest in a selection-managed northern hardwood forest in central Ontario, ...

  • Top 10 Tips To Improve Plant Quality

    1) Venting – it’s crucial to keep air movement and temperatures at the optimum levels. 2) Watering at the right times – and just importantly in the correct fashion! Make sure plants are grown nearby those with similar needs so plants with a need for a lot of water will be apart from those with dryer needs. 3) Keep roots strong – as fertilizers are applied and plants grow, ...

  • Root penetration through sealing layers at mine deposit sites

    To prevent acid mine drainage arising from oxygen and water penetration of sulphide-rich mine tailings, the tailings are covered with layers of dry sealing material. Plant roots have a great ability to penetrate dense materials, and if the roots are able to penetrate the sealing layer of a tailings deposit, its oxygen-shielding properties could be reduced. The objective of this study was to ...

  • Roots to Recreation: Cannabis Legalization Promotes Grow Room Expansion

    Criminalization of cannabis cultivation and consumption in the United States began with prohibition by certain states in the early 20th century (between 1911 and 1933, some 29 states banned the cultivation and/or use of cannabis), with the first significant nationwide federal restrictions implemented under the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. More recently, just as the states instituted the first ...

  • Multisensor Capacitance Probes for Simultaneously Monitoring Rice Field Soil-Water-Crop-Ambient Conditions

    Abstract: Multisensor capacitance probes (MCPs) have traditionally been used for soil moisture monitoring and irrigation scheduling. This paper presents a new application of these probes, namely the simultaneous monitoring of ponded water level, soil moisture, and temperature profile, conditions which are particularly important for rice crops in temperate growing regions and for rice grown with ...
