Abstract

We have studied the effect of the different dosages of bentonite, in addition to basic treatments, on acidic sandy soil. Our test plant was rye-grass (Lolium perenne L.). Both regarding the changes in the soil nutrient content and microbial activity, small and medium dosages proved to be the most effective. The highest plant biomass was obtained in the medium dosage treatment. In the statistical evaluation we verified a relationship between the studied soil characteristics and the amount of plant biomass.
