Wastewater Applications Changes in Soil Properties, Livestock Response and Crop Yield

Wastewater Applications Changes in Soil Properties, Livestock Response and Crop Yield Examines the potential for excessive crop uptake of nutrients, soilmineralization, and response of livestock to the usage of Ogunpa Stream,Ibadan, Nigeria. A number of surface water and soil samples werecollected from the Ogunpa and small irrigated farms near the stream forphysicochemical examination. Results show that the stream is suitablefor irrigated agriculture but not for aquaculture and livestock breedingespecially in the middle reaches. The added nutrients accumulated in thecultivated layer of the soil. There was some evidence of migration ofsome elements down from the cultivated layer. The potential hazard forpollution caused by irrigating with the polluted water threatens cropand vegetables grown on adjacent farms as well as groundwater of thenearby area. This may seriously affect the consumers. It is recommendedthat residents around the stream become aware of how to reduce thepollution level. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Environmental Management and Health Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Examines the potential for excessive crop uptake of nutrients, soilmineralization, and response of livestock to the usage of Ogunpa Stream,Ibadan, Nigeria. A number of surface water and soil samples werecollected from the Ogunpa and small irrigated farms near the stream forphysicochemical examination. Results show that the stream is suitablefor irrigated agriculture but not for aquaculture and livestock breedingespecially in the middle reaches. The added nutrients accumulated in thecultivated layer of the soil. There was some evidence of migration ofsome elements down from the cultivated layer. The potential hazard forpollution caused by irrigating with the polluted water threatens cropand vegetables grown on adjacent farms as well as groundwater of thenearby area. This may seriously affect the consumers. It is recommendedthat residents around the stream become aware of how to reduce thepollution level.
