  1. Pedogenic differences between two adjacent basalt-derived soil profiles 1. Textural and chemical characteristics

    Pedogenic differences between two adjacent basalt-derived soil profiles 1. Textural and chemical characteristics

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Eleven soil samples derived from a black vertisol (Arcadia form) and a red alfisol (Shortlands form) were investigated by means of X-ray fluorescence as well as standard soil chemical and physical analyses. The profiles developed from Jurassic basalt under identical...

    Pedogenic differences between two adjacent basalt-derived soil profiles 2. Mineralogical characteristics

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The mineralogical composition of a black vertisol (Arcadia form) and a red alfisol (Shortlands form) profile, derived from Jurassic basalt and situated 35 m apart, has been determined by means of X-ray diffraction analysis. The non-clay fractions of the least-weathered...
  3. Pentachlorophenol-contaminated soil bioremediation: survival and efficacy of monoculture inoculants and enrichment of indigenous catabolic populations

    Pentachlorophenol-contaminated soil bioremediation: survival and efficacy of monoculture inoculants and enrichment of indigenous catabolic populations

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Survival and efficacy of monoculture inoculants of Flavobaderium sp. and Rhodococcus chlorophenolicus to bioremediate PCP-contaminated soil were examined under sterile and non-sterile conditions. Both species effected ≥ 40% catabolism in four weeks although inoculant survival was significantly higher with R...
  4. Using Ground Penetrating Radar to investigate spoil layers in rehabilitated minesoils

    Using Ground Penetrating Radar to investigate spoil layers in rehabilitated minesoils

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Opencast coal mining on the Highveld of Mpumalanga involves the disturbance of highly productive soils, which must then be rehabilitated on top of the mined spoil. Various problems in this process may occur, however, which may lead to water-logging, compaction...
  5. Evaluation of soil conservation measures on a highly erodible soil in the Free State province, South Africa

    Evaluation of soil conservation measures on a highly erodible soil in the Free State province, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Soil erosion is a problem in South Africa, and is exacerbated by poor land use practices and erodible soils. Several methods are available to address the problem and a runoff trial was conducted over four rainfall seasons on an erodible,...
