Carbide lime and industrial hydrated lime characterization
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE SA, 2009)
This paper focuses on the characterization of carbide lime (CL) - a by-product of acetylene production, composed mainly of calcium hydroxide with minor parts of carbonate - and compares its features to those of ""dry"" ...
Surface Reapplication of Lime and Gypsum on Maize Cultivated Sole and Intercropped with Urochloa
(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2018-01-01)
The aim of this experiment was to study the lime and gypsum reapplied on surface and their impacts on maize crop under the sole and intercropped systems. The experiment is being developed in a dystrophic Oxisol, since 2011, ...
Lime and phosphogypsum impacts on soil organic matter pools in a tropical Oxisol under long-term no-till conditions
Improving soil organic matter (SOM) quality in tropical acid soils is important for increasing the sustainability of agricultural ecosystems. This research evaluated the effect of the surface application of lime and ...
Evolution of the mechanical properties of a tropical soil stabilized with lime and ash of rice rind
The ash of rice rind is a pozzolanic material that reacts with the calcium hydroxide (Ca (OH)2) forming bonding composites, when finely worn out and in water presence. Considering this behavior, the objective of the present ...
Liming and Manganese Foliar Levels in Orange
(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2009-01-01)
Citrus cultures have a fundamental importance to the Brazilian economy; certain aspects such as plant nutrition, yield, and fruit quality are vital for the citrus industry sustainability. The present study evaluated the ...
Optimization of lime and clay-based hemp-concrete wall formulations for a successful lime rendering
(Elsevier Ltd, 2018)
Different pathologies may arise on a wall finish if this is applied on a hemp-based rammed wall that is not completely dry. By simulating uneven drying and early-rendering of load-bearing and non-load-bearing hemp concrete ...
Pond bottom dryout, liming. Part II. Limit liming after soil testing.
(Global Aquaculture Advocate, St. Louis, p. 36-37, Mar./Apr. 2015., 2015)
Liming in the transition to no-till under a wheat-soybean rotation
(Elsevier B.V., 2007-12-01)
Soil and subsoil aluminium toxicity has been one of the main limiting factors for soybean and wheat yields in tropical soils. Usually liming is the most effective way to deal with soil acidity and Al toxicity, but in no-till ...
