Pedological concepts to be considered in soil chronosequence studies 
Daniela Sauer

Soil chronosequence data may easily be interpreted in a too straightforward and simple a way if some relevant theoretical background is not kept in mind. This paper discusses pedological concepts that are considered relevant for soil chronosequence studies. Implications of each of the mentioned concepts are pointed out, in order to provide some guidance for establishing soil chronosequences and interpreting obtained data.

Derivation of soil-attribute estimations from legacy soil maps 
Nathan P. Odgers, Karen W. Holmes, Ted Griffin and Craig Liddicoat

It is increasingly necessary to extract even more information from legacy soil maps. We mapped clay content and its uncertainty for Western Australia and the agricultural region of South Australia at six depth intervals using digital soil-class maps that were derived from legacy soil-map information. The results demonstrate harmonisation of soil data from several sources into a map with a common specification and highlight areas where our soil knowledge is incomplete.

Land management within capability: a new scheme to guide sustainable land management in New South Wales, Australia 
Jonathan M. Gray, Greg A. Chapman and Brian W. Murphy

The management of land within its inherent physical capability is vital to prevent land degradation and maintain productive soil and land resources. A new scheme, land management within capability (LMwC), that semi-quantitatively categorises the level of sustainable land management in relation to a range of soil and land hazards is presented. It can help to target priorities and guide sustainable soil and land management at local, regional and state levels.

100 Years of superphosphate addition to pasture in an acid soil—current nutrient status and future management 
Cassandra R. Schefe, Kirsten M. Barlow, Nathan J. Robinson, Douglas M. Crawford, Timothy I. McLaren, Ronald J. Smernik, George Croatto, Ronald D. Walsh and Matt Kitching

The Permanent Top-Dressed (PTD) pasture experiment was established in 1914 at the Rutherglen Research Station in Victoria, Australia, to demonstrate the value of adding phosphorus fertiliser to increase pasture productivity for lamb and wool production. This paper reports on the status of the PTD soils after 100 years, investigating the long-term implications of continuous grazing and fertiliser management on the soil. After 100 years these soils would be in a state of quasi-equilibrium, with the history of superphosphate addition and grazing leading to a decrease in soil pH while increasing the carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and exchangeable Al compared to the control.

Effect of cropping practices on soil organic carbon: evidence from long-term field experiments in Victoria, Australia 
Fiona Robertson, Roger Armstrong, Debra Partington, Roger Perris, Ivanah Oliver, Colin Aumann, Doug Crawford and David Rees

It is widely suggested that soil organic matter (carbon) in grain production systems can be increased by using practices such as reduced tillage, stubble retention and alternative rotations. We measured soil carbon levels in three long-term (12, 28 and 94 year old) field experiments in Victoria. We found that these practices may not reliably increase carbon on their own, but that significant increases are possible in some circumstances through long-term use of multiple practices such as stubble retention + reduced tillage + legume + elimination of fallow.

Strategies to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in intensively managed vegetable cropping systems in subtropical Australia 
blank image
M. Rezaei Rashti , W. J. Wang , S. M. Harper , P. W. Moody , C. R. Chen , H. Ghadiri and S. H. Reeves
pp. 475-484

In combination with frequent and low-intensity irrigation and split application of fertiliser N, substitution of NO3-based fertilisers for urea and reduction in fertiliser N application rates were considered promising mitigation strategies to maintain yield and minimise N2O emissions during the low rainfall season.

Junfang Cui , Mohammad Sadegh Askari and Nicholas M. Holden
pp. 485-493

C and N stocks in relation to grazing management in Ireland were studied. Proper reseeding was helpful to maintain soil C and N, while chemical N fertiliser did not cause any change of soil C and N. Intensified stocking rate caused changes of soil C and N by re-locating soil C and N at depth.

Salinity-induced differences in soil microbial communities around the hypersaline Lake Urmia 
blank image
Mohsen Barin , Nasser Aliasgharzad , Pål Axel Olsson and MirHassan Rasouli-Sadaghiani
pp. 494-504

We found that increasing salinity decreases soil microbial biomass. Microbial community structure is changed by increased salinity; and any changes in the community that are brought about by increasing salinity will reflect adaptations in the PLFA composition resulting from microbial cell stress.

Slow-release boron fertilisers: co-granulation of boron sources with mono-ammonium phosphate (MAP) 
blank image
Margaret Abat , Fien Degryse , Roslyn Baird and Michael J. McLaughlin
pp. 505-511

Most boron fertiliser sources are water soluble and the application of these sources alone can cause adverse effects in many crops and result in leaching losses. The application of slow-release boron sources can overcome these problems. Boron phosphates co-granulated with mono-ammonium phosphate (MAP) provide slow release of B and have potential as high-quality boron fertilisers in high rain fall areas.

Evaluation of load support capacity of remoulded fine and coarse textured soils as affected by wetting and drying cycles 
blank image
Maryam Salehian Dastjerdi and Abbas Hemmat
pp. 512-521

The effects of wetting and drying cycles on estimation of the load support capacity (pre-compaction stress; σpc) of two soils using plate sinkage test (PST) and confined compression test (CCT) were studied. The results indicated that for both soils, σpc estimated from PST did not show any significant difference with the values of preload. This method can, therefore, be used to determine the load support capacity for tilled soils.

Effects of thinning on soil respiration and microbial respiration of forest floor and soil in an oak (Quercus frainetto) forest 
blank image
Serdar Akburak and Ender Makineci
pp. 522-530

The effects of thinning on soil respiration and microbial respiration in Quercus frainetto forest were examined over 2-year. Annual mean RS was significantly higher in thinned plots and had linear correlations with GC, soil temperature and fine root biomass. RSM had linear correlation with soil N content and soil pH, RFFM had linear correlations with C concentration and the C : N ratio of forest floor in thinned plots.

Variability of total soil respiration in a Mediterranean vineyard 
blank image
Egidio Lardo , Assunta Maria Palese , Vitale Nuzzo , Cristos Xiloyannis and Giuseppe Celano
pp. 531-541

Total soil respiration (TSR) is the major component of the CO2 global flux. It is hard to define a TSR field value because this parameter shows high variability in time and space. An accurate TSR estimate could be the key to define soil CO2 emissions. Electromagnetic induction can be useful to study the distribution of TSR field variability allowing an accurate accounting of soil efflux.

Runoff and sediment yield of tilled and spontaneous grass-covered olive groves grown on sloping land 
blank image
A. M. Palese , J. Ringersma , J. E. M. Baartman , P. Peters and C. Xiloyannis
pp. 542-552

Soil erosion in olive groves is a widespread phenomenon in the Mediterranean Basin. Erosion of grass-covered and tilled soils was assessed in this small-scale study. Temporal evolution of tillage effects was also evaluated. Grass cover limited runoff and sediment yield in sloping olive groves. Time after tillage affected erosion by reducing runoff and especially sediment yield.

I. F. Torres , F. Bastida , T. Hernández , J. Albaladejo and C. García
pp. 553-560

The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term influences of urban organic amendments on the enzymes involved in the carbon cycle under semi-arid conditions. Total microbial activities, microbial biomass estimated by phospholipid-fatty acid analysis and the number of isoforms of each enzyme, analysed by zymographic techniques, showed increases related to the initial amount of organic amendment and the consequent development of vegetation.

An error budget for soil salinity mapping using different ancillary data 
blank image
J. Huang , E. Zare , R. S. Malik and J. Triantafilis
pp. 561-575

Although digital soil mapping is becoming popular, few studies have investigated the uncertainty distribution. We used elevation, radioelement and EM38-v data to map soil salinity at the district scale and employed conditional simulation to quantify errors. Combined error was ~4.44 dS m–1, attributable to input (1.38 dS m–1) and model error (0.02 dS m–1). The large input error is attributable to the lack of ancillary data.
