Carbon Stocks and Pools in Relation to the Texture of Kaolinitic Soils from the Brazilian East Coast

João Bosco Vasconcellos Gomes, Carlos Alberto Silva, Tamara Letícia de Azevedo Ferreira, Mozart Martins Ferreira, Alberto Vasconcellos Inda, Nilton Curi

12/Sep/2018

ABSTRACT: Extremely kaolinitic soils of Tertiary age elevations on the Brazilian east coast present a wide range of texture, which is recognized as one of the main factors controlling the soil organic matter contents. This study aimed to investigate the organic C storage of different compartments of kaolinitic soils. The studied soils had a wide particle size gradient, were under native forest vegetation, and located on Brazil’s eastern coast (Coruripe – CF, Umbaúba – UF, Nova Viçosa – VF, Sooretama […]

Is Composting a Route to Solubilize Low-Grade Phosphate Rocks and Improve MAP-Based Composts?

Henrique José Guimarães Moreira Maluf, Carlos Alberto Silva, Everton Geraldo de Morais, Leonardo Henrique Duarte de Paula

05/Feb/2018

ABSTRACT: In alkalinized and Ca-rich composts, solubilization of apatite from phosphate rocks (PRs) is not guaranteed; however, chelating agents and humified substances produced during composting may alter the soluble contents and P forms of monoammonium phosphate (MAP)-based composts. These effects may depend on the proportions of organic wastes and P source used in the compost piles. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of composting chicken manure, coffee husk, and Araxá PR, Bayóvar PR, or MAP in […]

Soil Fertility and Electrical Conductivity Affected by Organic Waste Rates and Nutrient Inputs

Davi Lopes do Carmo, Laís Botelho de Lima, Carlos Alberto Silva

01/Aug/2016

ABSTRACT The composition of organic waste (OW) and its effect on soil processes may change soil fertility and electrical conductivity (EC). The side effects of waste use in crop fertilization are poorly understood for Brazilian soils. This study examined the effect of the addition of 15 different organic wastes to Oxisols and a Neosol on pH, base saturation, EC, cation exchange capacity (CEC at pH 7), and the availability of Al, macro (P, K, Ca2+, Mg2+ and S) and micronutrients […]

TRACE ELEMENTS IN NATIVE VEGETATION AND INTENSIVE AGRICULTURE AREAS IN MATO GROSSO, BRAZIL, DETERMINED BY TOTAL REFLECTION X-RAY FLUORESCENCE

Maria Aparecida Pereira Pierangeli, Luiz Roberto Guimarães Guilherme, Geila Santos Carvalho, Camila de Andrade Carvalho, Carlos Alberto Silva, Luiza Maria Pereira Pierangeli

01/Jul/2015

Total Reflection X-ray Fluorescence (TXRF) is a promising technique for analysis of trace elements (TEs), mainly because samples do not need to be digested, thereby reducing generation of waste and emission of toxic fumes. This study compared the levels of the TEs:Cr, Mn, Ni, Zn, Cu, As, Se, Hg, and Pb in soil samples collected from intensive agricultural and native vegetation areas, as determined by TXRF and by flame or graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS/GFAAS). In addition, we compared […]
