  • Spectroscopy: Simple solution for soil sample

    Farmers and gardeners know their soil texture can make a big difference in their success. Different plants have different needs for water, nutrients, and air. When they grow in soil that has the right texture, it is easier to deliver the right amount of water, fertilizer, or pesticide to the plants. Then they grow better. Traditional ways of analyzing soil texture are slow. Danish researchers ...

  • Soil – the living skin of planet earth

    The soil forms the outer skin of the land masses of Planet Earth. This thin veneer of living material is sometimes only a few centimetres thick and rarely thicker than two or three metres, but it has critical influence on what happens on the surface of the Earth. Soil is our life-support system. It provides anchorage for roots; holds water long enough for plants to make use of it; and holds ...

  • Do nanoparticles affect the health of the soil ecosystem?

    New research reveals that many microorganisms, including bacteria and protozoa, show little sensitivity to fullerene nanoparticles applied to soil samples. However, fast-growing bacteria decreased in number and the genetic diversity of bacteria and protozoa altered slightly. This could affect the bottom of the food chain, which may have long-term implications for the overall health of the soil ...
