Land Application of Wastes: An Educational Program. Crop Selection and Management Alternatives - Module 20, Objectives, and Script.
Clarkson, W. W.; And Others
This module enumerates the benefits to be derived from cropping at a waste application site and criteria to be used in selecting a crop for use in a particular situation. Following basic discussions of the requirements of various crops for water, soil-plant-air moisture potentials, crop water tolerance, nutrient removals by various crops, and tolerance to nutrients and salts, practical management techniques are discussed which will extend the usefulness of crop systems in land treatment of wastes.
