The effect of chitosan based superabsorbent hydrogel was studied to evaluate the moisture retention properties of red and alluvial soil. The soil amended with 0.3 per cent of superabsorbent hydrogel enhanced the moisture retention significantly as compared to the untreated soil. Seed germination and seedling growth of Alfalfa was found to be notabl...
Use of innovative nano clay polymer composite (NCPC) superabsorbent was explored particularly to ameliorate moisture stress condition under rainfed ecosystem. NCPC were synthesized by polymerization reaction with 10% acrylic acid, acrylamide, 0.9% ammonium per sulphate as initiator, 0.12% N, N′-methylene bis acrylamide loaded with 10% kaolinite cla...
Coalfield mine overburden or abandoned mine sites is a major environmental concern. Overburden materials are nutrient-poor, loosely adhered particles of shale, stones, boulders and cobbles and are devoid of true soil character. Eco-restoration or natural transformation of overburden materials to soil for cultivation is a time taking process. In the...
Mining particularly opencast mining contribute over 81% of total coal production in India. Opencast mining releases huge amount of mining wastes to the upper part of the land surface as overburden dump materials. Overburden materials are nutrient-poor, loosely adhered particles of shale, stones, boulders and cobbles and are devoid of true soil char...
