Dynamics of decomposition of vegetable residues in chernozem typical

DOI: 10.24411/0235-2516-2018-00001

In the regulation of the fertility of chernozems an important role is played by plant residues entering the soil after harvesting the cultivated crops. Their value is determined not only by biomass, but also by the rate of its decomposition, which affects the supply of nutrients to the plowing soil. The purpose of the work was to establish the degree and nature of the decomposition of plant residues in pure form and in a mixture with other crops along the soil layers of chernozem soil under the conditions of a micro-field experiment (laid in the fields of the Ertil district of the Voronezh region). It was found that the intensity of decomposition of a mixture of plant remnants of cultures was greater than in pure form. By the rate of decomposition of plant remains of cultures in their pure form, they can be arranged in the following descending order: sugar beet – 72.8%, sainfoin – 69.9, clover – 68.2, alfalfa – 67.7, barley – 54.7, winter wheat – 54.0, sunflower – 50.6%. The intensity of decomposition of plant residues in the mixture was higher than in pure form: sunflower with lucerne blue by 19.1%, with sainfoin by 16.3, with a sweet clover by 14.6, straw of winter wheat with alfalfa Blue by 6.5, with a sweet clover by 5.0, with a sainfoin by 3.8%.

Keywords: plant residues, typical chernozem, decomposition, perennial grasses, crop rotation.

The evolution of chestnut soils in the Holocene

DOI: 10.24411/0235-2516-2018-00002

The problems of soil formation occupy a leading place in modern theoretical soil science. To determine changes in chestnut soils over a 5-thousand year period, studies of buried soils and their modern analogues were carried out at the border of the Turkmen region of Stavropol and the Republic of Kalmykia. Thanks to the method of burial, the soil was not disturbed and preserved intact. Modern soils have been studied in the immediate vicinity (80-100 m) of the mound. Mineralogical, granulometric and salt composition, state of the soil sorption complex of buried and modern chestnut soils were studied. It is established that within 5-thousand years in the composition of clay minerals there has been a reorganization in the smectite-hydromica system with neoplasm of the latter. The content of kaolinite does not undergo special changes. According to the salt composition, the buried soils are medium solonchakous, modern soils are not saline. According to the composition of the exchange bases, the buried soils are classified as solonetzes, modern ones are non-solonetsous. The study of acid-base potential indicates a decrease in alkalinity in modern soils by 0.2-0.7 units at slightly alkaline pH, consequently, the soils have evolved from solonetzic solonets soils to zonal chestnut soils.

Keywords: evolution, smectites, hydromica, salt composition, solonetses, chestnut soils.


Granulometric composition of soils: methods of laser diffraction and sedimentometry, their comparison and use

DOI: 10.24411/0235-2516-2018-00003

The granulometric composition of soils (GCS) is widely used both as the basic fundamental property and as the main predictor to calculate the necessary soil properties in the form of a predictor in pedotransfer functions (PTF). Currently, the traditional sedimentometric methods (the pipette method, hydrometer) are used, and a new method of laser diffraction begins to be actively used. The aim of the study is to compare the GCS obtained by different methods and to estimate of the possibility of using the results by laser diffraction to calculate the filtration coefficient (Kf). Despite the fact that the methods give systematic errors in different soils, the dispersion of GCS fractions, measured by both methods, was insignificant and did not change the type of soil texture. The results of the investigation of GCS by laser diffraction methods and the pipette method can be used for the predictive calculation of Kf with the use of PTF, without any modifications or recalculations for loamy soils of soddy-podzolic soil formation.

Keywords: granulometric composition of soils, laser difraction method, sedimentometry, pedotransfer functions, filtration coefficient.

Assessment of the effects of fertilizer based on sewage sludge by the bioassay method

DOI: 10.24411/0235-2516-2018-00004

Ecotoxicological assessment of aftereffect of compost application on the basis of sewage sludge in soils with different properties is given. The composting provided a reliable increase in the yield of cultivated crops. However, based on the results of soil biotesting by test cultures of different taxonomic groups, and also on the indicators of vital activity of microflora, chronic toxicity is established for soil organisms that limits their reproduction. Soil biotesting from the experience in the Vologda region has shown that chemical analysis is not suitable for predicting ecotoxicological risks when introducing waste, since the toxicity does not correlate with the amount present in the pollutant waste.

Keywords: soil, sewage sludge, heavy metals, chronic pollution, bioassay.


Copper in agrocenoses of the forest-steppe of Central chernozem federal district

DOI: 10.24411/0235-2516-2018-00005

On results of local agroecological monitoring, carried out at reference sites, and a continuous agrochemical survey of arable soils of the Belgorod region has been conducted assessment of copper content in soils and crop production. It was established that the average gross copper content in the arable layer of chernozems in the forest-steppe zone is 13.1mg/kg. With an increase in the depth of the soil profile the total copper content decreases. According to the results of the continuous survey of 2010-2014, it was found that 96.8% of the arable soils of the Belgorod region are characterized by low availability of mobile forms of copper. Exceeding the MAC for mobile element forms was not observed. The main source of microelement supply to agrocoenosis is organic fertilizers. On average for 2010-2013 the dose of organic fertilizer application was 3.9 t/ha, and 92.1% of copper came from agrocoenosis to the agrocoenosis. The highest content of this metal was observed in sunflower seeds (14.5 mg/kg) and in soybeans (11.7 mg/kg), and the lowest in sugar beet roots (2.13 mg/kg) and corn kernels (2.56 mg/kg).

Keywords: copper, microelements, monitoring, soil, plants, chernozem.

Agrochemical events in adaptive-landscape agriculture in the contaminated territories

DOI: 10.24411/0235-2516-2018-00010

In many years of research studied the influence of chemical events in the biological mobility of radionuclides. It is established that uptake of 137Cs by plants from marginal soils to 5.5 times higher compared to cultivated soils. The complex application of ameliorants and mineral fertilizers helps to reduce the accumulation of 137Cs in the crop of grain crops up to 3.7 times. It is shown that for the organization of the land use of radioactively contaminated agricultural grounds in the adaptive landscape agriculture it is necessary the grouping lands not only in agroecological and radioecological parameters, but also on the degree of cultivation of soils, which determines the mobility of radionuclides in the soil-plant system.

Assessment of soil exposed to high-temperature effects in the accident at the main gas pipeline

DOI: 10.24411/0235-2516-2018-00012

One of the negative options for human influence on the soil cover is the effect of fire on it. This method of preparing soils for agricultural needs has been used by mankind since ancient times to effectively destroy the natural phytocoenosis. The disadvantage of using this method was a much high speed of depletion of soils, which ultimately eradicated this technology. However the problem of the negative impact of open fire on the soil cover of agricultural land has not disappeared over time and is relevant even today, although it is of a casual nature associated with man-made accidents and catastrophes. One of the options for this kind of impact are accidents on high-pressure gas pipelines accompanied by flaring of natural gas. The effect of high-temperature flame on soil cover leads to specific changes in physical, mechanical and agrochemical indicators within a radius of several hundred meters from the site of the accident. The article gives an assessment of the nature of changes in the main indicators of soil fertility in dark gray forest soils, depending on the degree of remoteness from the epicenter of the accident. It is established that as a result of exposure to high temperatures in the zone with the most severe damage, organic matter burns out, resulting in a threefold decrease in its content. Sintering and melting of soil minerals leads on average to a decrease in mobile forms of phosphorus and potassium by 38% and 58%, respectively. In addition, the effect of high temperatures causes a decrease in the content of mobile iron forms by more than 4.5 times. Detected features should be considered when planning for soil recultivation with a partially or completely a burnt fertile layer of soil.

Keywords: main gas pipeline, pyrogenesis, dark gray forest soils, humus, mobile forms of phosphorus and potassium, recultivation.


Evaluation of humic products application as ameliorants for degraded post-pyrogenic reclamation soils

DOI: 10.24411/0235-2516-2018-00013

Forest fires is an important factor that disturbs natural processes in the forest. Today, soil properties which have undergone significant changes and not for the better are not taken into account when restoring post-pyrogenic territories. It is necessary to carry out melioration measures to restore forest ecosystems and soil fertility. It is recommended to use Life Force Humate Balance product as a soil ameliorant and to compare its effect with humates Na obtained from cow manure by the oxidative-hydrolytic destruction method (the author's earlier studies). The experiment was conducted on Stavropol pine forest of Togliatti city, Samara region. In 2010 the territory has been exposed to surface and crown forest fires. At the beginning of June 2017, there were carried out 5 experimental plots 10 m2 each. Life Force Humate Balance fertilizer was applied in the quantity of 100, 300, 500, 800 and 1000 grams during the experiments. It was established that the application of fertilizers complex positively effects of optimal dosage of fertilizers on microbial condition of post pyrogenic soils especially after crown fires. It was also shown the importance of application – 300-500 g per 10 m2. Both reduction and excess of the doses lead to a leveling of positive effects.

Keywords: soils, wildfires, post-pyrogenic successions, reclamation of forests resources, complex fertilizer Life Force Humate Balance, humic acids, microbial soil status, soil microbial biomass, basal respiration.
