Sorption of certain elements by 10 soils quantified. Sorption isotherms were nonlinear and pH, CEC, organic matter and clay content were dominant properties.
The purpose of this study was to establish critical soil compaction thresholds for M1A1 Abrams battle tank traffic in an effort to minimize soil physical properties that adversely affect vegetation regeneration. (PDF format only)
This field guide represents an update of work by Amacher et al. (1989), the original idea of which started with Dr. Bob Miller. The guide provides researchers and others interested in soils with a concise key to the classification of soils throughout Louisiana along with information on geology, climate, vegetation, etc. (PDF format only)
Incidence of groundwater contamination by agrichemicals in the United States and elsewhere is of concern in terms of the health effects associated with chemical contaminants present in drinking water. The major objectives of this study were: (1) to quantify the mobility of atrazine and nitrates in a Sharkey clay soil in the presence of a shallow water table, and (2) to determine evidence of preferential flow patterns on the mobility of agricultural chemicals in such soils.

Georgia-5 tall fescue was developed for use as a permanent, cool-season pasture grass on the Coastal Plain. The results of two field plot experiments and observations from additional small-plot plantings and 40 acres of pasture for grazing experiments at the Rosepine Research Station provide the basis for this discussion of Georgia-5 tall fescue establishment.
