Organic matter, water infiltration and tomographic images of Latosol in reclamation under different managements
MetadataShow full item record
In this study the objective was to evaluate the effects of different managements on reclamation of an Oxisol for seven years. The treatments were: two controls, A - Savannah vegetation; B - exposed soil; besides the treatment, C - Area with only tree species Astronium fraxinifolium (GA); D - A. fraxinifolium + Raphanus sativus until 2005, replaced by the following Crotalaria juncea (GA + C); E - A. fraxinifolium + Canavalia ensiformis (GA + FP); F - A. fraxinifolium+sewage sludge + Brachiaria decumbens (GA + LE + B). There was no convergence with respect to the behavior of soil quality indicator in recovery for seven years, studied in this work; treatment A. fraxinifolium+sewage sludge + Brachiaria decumbens provided the best response to soil organic matter content; the treatments used for soil reclamation had similar water infiltration; the treatments with A. fraxinifolium + Crotalaria juncea; A. fraxinifolium+Canavalia ensiformis and A. fraxinifolium + sewage sludge + Brachiaria decumbens in soil tomographic images were those with the best conditions of soil structure, the recovery process has reached the soil layer of 0-10 cm.
