    us to soil revitalization I am always curious about the nature of soil The land can prosper through our stewardship At UC Davis I learned how soil develops and responds in nature I spent my first years as a soil mapper working for engineering and environmental firms and for agencies including the Bureau of Reclamation and the Yakima Indian Nation I directed farm irrigation and fertility services with Agrimanagement in

  • Clastic Dikes and the Sendai Earthquake
    Most are in Washington State see map of Lake Lewis In some places they are shot full of clastic dikes a concern because they might provide a preferential pathway for contaminants reaching groundwater Short circuiting of contaminants down dike structures is enough of a concern that Washington Department of Ecology has us assess clastic dike presence during siting studies of industrial wastewater sprayfields see WDOE 9336 page 12 An actual

  • Biochar Standards
    recognize this as a critically important issue One is left to wonder how much more effective recent federal research would have been if it had included a robust characterization of the biochar stock provided by the fast pyrolysis industries That research often does a poor job in controlling for the liming effect of the biochar How much of a boost to productivity would you get with just the liming effect absent the charcoal This clearly matters and as I have shared with some of the Working Group members I would like to see acid neutralizing potential or ANP in units of calcium carbonate equivalent or CCE be at least considered as a labeling requirement Other aspects are more critical but even a coarse rating of low med high ANP would be very useful Acid neutralizing potential is usually low in biochar between 1 and 2 CCE On the other hand some biochar stocks can have substantial ANP above 20 and as a consequence could alter forested soil ecology in unintended ways Out here in the inland Western US and Canada our soils are less acidic than in the East thus the same ANP application basis that will have no discernible

    matter Why should you care about soil aggregates he asked Because it s easier for a plant if it has soil structure porosity and areas for the roots to move down in the soil profile This makes it the easier to get to nutrients and water located deeper in the soil profile Planting cover crops can also benefit the bottom line of an operation as a source of forage That forage productivity is a function of soil health is not news What is news is our evolving appreciation of soil health in terms of a living system Restored soil is a highly valuable asset in most any setting and the more intense the land use the more to be contributed by good soil Ecological restoration and urban redevelopment have much to gain from the grazing schools of soil husbandry There are lots of bits to this puzzle but when it comes to sustaining life in soil the energy bit is not to be forgotten Mulch and compost delivers food energy Soy bean meal used to improve soil structure in public turf and playing fields works similarly Cover crops and woody vegetation work to sustain a healthy symbiotic rhizospheric soil community on root exudate rich in food energy This is a different microbial community than is working on the sloughed root mass on soy bean meal mulch and compost a healthy soil has both a rhizosheric community and a bulk jargon for outside the rhizospheric soil enveloping the root soil community thriving in concert Gary Jones has posted about this article also and alludes to a food energy feast available in the context of pulse grazing It isn t just that this reduces compaction it is also that it pumps biomass into the soil due to root pruning The root systems
