Changes in the soil quality attributes of continuous no-till farming systems following a strategic tillage 
M. H. Crawford, V. Rincon-Florez, A. Balzer, Y. P. Dang, L. C. Carvalhais, H. Liu and P. M. Schenk

The effects of strategic tillage on physical, chemical and biological soil properties, productivity, and weed control on five long-term (7–44 years) no-till managed soils were investigated. The impacts observed in physical, chemical and biological soil properties and productivity were overall non-significant. Significant weed reduction occurred in the first year in all soils, with variable results observed in the following year.

Heavy metal soil pollution is influenced by the location of green spaces within urban settings 
Fiona Curran-Cournane, Gavin Lear, Luitgard Schwendenmann and Jade Khin

Sixty green spaces were chosen in New Zealand’s largest city to determine how various factors influence levels of heavy metals in soils. Soil heavy metals were significantly influenced by the location of green spaces and the results were used to develop a ‘pollution index’ (PI). The PI was a useful tool in interpreting data and complemented traditional ways of reporting concentrations of heavy metals using soil pools which has been limited to date.

Impact of temperature and moisture on heterotrophic soil respiration along a moist tropical forest gradient in Australia 
M. Zimmermann, K. Davies, V. T. V. Peña de Zimmermann and M. I. Bird

The combined effect of temperature and moisture on respiration rates of tropical forest soils were investigated by means of a translocation approach. By this, soil cores were reciprocally replaced among three sites along an altitudinal gradient and respiration rates measured all three weeks for one year. Best fit model predictions suggested that temperature is the more dominate factor and soils of higher elevations with higher soil carbon stocks are more vulnerable to warming than low elevation soils.

Assessment of tillage effects on soil quality of pastures in South Africa with indexing methods 
P. A. Swanepoel, C. C. du Preez, P. R. Botha, H. A. Snyman and J. Habig

Soil quality of pasture systems in the southern Cape of South Africa is declining. Soil quality of five management systems was evaluated using the locally developed soil quality index for pastures. Soil physical, chemical and biological quality was affected by management practice, and prolonged tillage had an adverse impact on soil quality.

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

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.

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.

Soil organic carbon fractions under conventional and no-till management in a long-term study in southern Spain 
blank image
R. Carbonell-Bojollo, E. J. González-Sánchez, M. Repullo Ruibérriz de Torres, R. Ordóñez-Fernández, J. Domínguez-Gimenez and G. Basch
pp. 113-124

This study compares the viability of no-till farming (NT) with conventional (traditional) tillage (TT) for improving SOC levels. The results indicate that the NT method is particularly beneficial for improving the quality of agricultural soil. The lower spatial and temporal variability of SOC content, including labile and recalcitrant C forms, observed in TT soil indicates a homogenisation of the soil profile and a more modified structure than in NT soil. The NT system improved the levels of the different fractions of C in the surface soil and reduced the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere.

Increased profile wettability in texture-contrast soils from clay delving: case studies in South Australia 
blank image
Giacomo Betti, Cameron Grant, Gordon Churchman and Robert Murray
pp. 125-136

We quantified the effects of clay-delving (which disrupts the A-B horizon boundary and adds clay to the sandy rootzone) on water distribution through the profile of texture-contrast soils using a soluble blue dye to enhance digital images. Profile wetting was highly variable but clay delving effectively reduced finger flow and ponding at the A–B horizon boundary. It also induced deeper and more uniform wetting of both A and B horizons. Effects diminished with distance from the delving line.

N. Balaine, T. J. Clough, F. M. Kelliher and C. van Koten
pp. 137-143

Studies determining the influence of soil aeration on dicyandiamide (DCD) degradation rates are sparse. DCD degradation rates were measured under controlled soil aeration conditions by maintaining soil cores at different matric potential levels. The study shows that soil aeration determines DCD degradation rates in soil which has implications for designing optimal DCD utilisation strategies.

Waqar Ahmad, Balwant Singh, Ram C. Dalal and Feike A. Dijkstra
pp. 144-153

Data are scarce on the estimates of CaCO3 stocks in Australia, effect of land-use management practices on these stocks, and there is a lack of understanding on the fate of CO2 released from carbonates. We estimated carbonate stocks from four major soil types (Calcarosols, Vertosols, Kandosols and Chromosols) and provide a baseline to assess potential CO2 emission–sequestration through land-use changes. An overview of uncertainties in accounting for CO2 emission from major inorganic C transformations in soils.

K. M. Damsma, M. T. Rose and T. R. Cavagnaro
pp. 154-167

A broad-scale survey of soil biological and chemical properties were measured across pasture-based grazing systems in south-eastern Victoria. Soil properties were highly variable among pasture sites and biological properties were difficult to predict, but some patterns were evident. The findings of this survey provide baseline information on the landscape scale for commonly used indicators of soil health

L. L. Walden, R. J. Harper, D. S. Mendham, D. J. Henry and J. B. Fontaine
pp. 168-177

Water repellency increased in the 5–8 years following reforestation with Eucalyptus globulus in a study of 31 paired sites (pasture v. plantation) across the south-west of Western Australia. There were no differences in other soil characteristics between pairs, including soil organic carbon content or composition suggesting induction by small amounts of hydrophobic compounds from the trees. Modelling revealed marked differences in the layering and packing of waxes on kaolinite and quartz surfaces, indicating the importance of interfacial interactions in the development of soil water repellency.

M. Tatzber, N. Schlatter, A. Baumgarten, G. Dersch, R. Körner, T. Lehtinen, G. Unger, E. Mifek and H. Spiegel
pp. 190-204

The determination of the active carbon (AC)-pool has been shown to reflect influences of soil management systems on soil organic matter pools quite well. This contribution combines the method for AC-determination with an alternative titration of the 0.02 M KMnO4 solution with Na2C2O4. Three long-term field experiments (first: 14C-label and different cropping systems; second: different tillage treatments; third: different kinds of compost-amendments) were investigated and the results showed the high potential of this methodology for sensitive and reliable detections of differences in SOM characteristics.

pp. 205-215

The temporal effect of organic waste recycling on soil biodiversity was studied during 24 months. The findings highlighted a first disturbance period (0–6 months) showing a marked increase in pH, potassium content, base saturation and macrofauna abundance, especially ants, whereas earthworm, millipede and nematode populations were substantially reduced. A resilience period (6–18 months) led to a final period (18–24 months) showing an improvement in most soil fertility parameters and a high density of earthworms

Xihua Yang
pp. 216-225

This study developed automated procedures in a geographic information system to estimate and map the slope length and steepness (LS) factor from ~30 m digital elevation model across New South Wales. The modelled LS factor values were compared with the reference LS values revealing good accuracy (coefficient of efficiency 0.97). The high-resolution digital LS map has been used along with other factors in the revised universal soil loss equation to estimate hillslope erosion hazard across New South Wales.
