Fruiting bodies yield of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus columbinus) as affected by different portions of compost in the substrate

Purpose A study was conducted to assess production of Pleurotus columbinus mushroom fruiting bodies for different formulations of rice or corn straw substrates mixed at different percent portions with the corresponding composted straw. Methods These formulations were: (1) raw straw (RS) mixed with 5 % composted straw (CS), (2) RS mixed with 10 % CS, […]

Utilization of waste lignin to prepare controlled-slow release urea

Purpose The present work reports an economically attractive improvement in the area of producing particulate slow release nitrogen fertilizer using lignin as a waste effluent of pulp and paper manufacturing process. Methods An improved coating of modified lignin was applied on the surfaces of the individual urea particles. The Kraft and Sulfite black liquors obtained […]

Vermiconversion of biogas plant slurry and parthenium weed mixture to manure

Purpose Parthenium hysterophorus is one among the most troublesome weeds at the global level. It is mainly controlled by chemical methods. The scientific community is in search of new but non-destructive approaches for its management. Vermicomposting is one among the promising technologies for the management of organic fraction of solid wastes. This study was undertaken […]

The effect of compost on growth and yield of Phaseolus vulgaris plants grown under saline soil

Purpose The effect of a novel organo-mineral fertilizer (OMF) compost, as a partial alternative to mineral fertilizers, on soil characteristics, growth, physio-biochemical attributes, Cd2? and NO3 – concentrations, and yields of Phaseolus vulgaris L. plants grown under salt stress was investigated. Methods Six organic and mineral materials were well mixed with water and composted in […]

Guar, jantar, wheat straw, and rice hull composts as replacements for peat in muskmelon transplant production

Purpose The demand for soilless media for vegetable transplant production is increasing. Economic constraints paired with concerns over the sustainability of peat mining have necessitated the replacement of peat with renewable and regionally abundant alternatives. The aim of this study was to develop from composts complete or partial substitutes for peat. Methods Composted guar (Cyamopsis […]

Heavy metal elimination from industrial wastewater using natural substrate on pitcher irrigation

Combination of pitcher irrigation with drip irrigation system could be resulted in prolonging the secondary treatment period, as it could be an efficient system in which municipal and industrial wastewater can be treated and heavy metals can be reduced. For this purpose, an experiment was conducted with three treatments [clay pitcher included natural zeolite Clinoptilolite […]

Effects of municipal waste compost and nitrogen fertilizer on growth and mineral composition of tomato

Purpose Since simultaneous use of organic and mineral fertilizers on the basis of their chemical compositions can lead to better plant growth and soil fertility, the roles of municipal waste compost (MWC) and nitrogen (N) fertilizer on growth and mineral composition of tomato and some soil properties were evaluated under greenhouse condition. Methods Treatments involved […]

Crop residue degradation by fungi isolated from conservation agriculture fields under rice–wheat system of North-West India

Purpose In North West-Indo Gangetic Plains (NW-IGP) of India in situ burning of crop residues is practiced by majority of farmers’ which deteriorates soil and environmental quality. Fungi have the potential for lignocellulose degradation and can be used for the in situ decomposition of crop residues. Lignocellulose degrading fungal spp. were isolated and evaluated for […]

Biochar from argan shells: production and characterization

Purpose The agricultural practices in south western Morocco reserve a majority of the water resources to be used for irrigation. The extent of irrigated agriculture combined with high evaporative rates, lead to the depletion of water resources and degradation of soil quality. To remedy to this problem, biochar, a pyrolysed biomass, is highly considered to […]

Purpose The present work reports an economically attractive improvement in the area of producing particulate slow release nitrogen fertilizer using lignin as a waste effluent of pulp and paper manufacturing process.Methods An improved coating of modified lignin was applied on the surfaces of the individual urea particles. The Kraft and Sulfite black liquors obtained from […]
