Changes in Soil Properties in the Cropland Conversion from Sandy Grassland, Inner Mongoila, China
Journal of Life Sciences and Technologies
Abstract-A field investigation to characterize some changes of soil properties in the cropland was conducted in 2002 in sandy Entisol under mung bean production. We found that once the grassland was converted to cropland, some soil properties degraded rapidly. There was a significant increase in the soil sand fraction and soil temperature, and a substantial decrease in soil silt and clay fraction, soil organic matter, total N, total P, available N and soil moisture in the cropland converteddoi:10.12720/jolst.1.2.118-122 fatcat:7il7rx55mzd55ghdlmelgyfayy
