Relationship Among Crop Systems, Soil Cover, and Water Erosion on a Typic Hapludox

Pedro Luiz Terra Lima, Marx Leandro Naves Silva, John Norman Quinton, Pedro Velloso Gomes Batista, Bernardo Moreira Cândido, Nilton Curi

ABSTRACT Several soil conservation practices are used to reduce water erosion and ensure sustainable agriculture. An effective crop management practice is intercropping, in which two or more crops with different architectures and vegetative cycles are grown simultaneously in the same area. We hypothesized that intercropping of corn and jack-bean increases soil cover and reduce soil erosion by water in comparison to monocropping. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of different crop systems on soil cover and […]

Predicting Runoff Risks by Digital Soil Mapping

Mayesse Aparecida da Silva, Marx Leandro Naves Silva, Phillip Ray Owens, Nilton Curi, Anna Hoffmann Oliveira, Bernardo Moreira Candido

17/Oct/2016

ABSTRACT Digital soil mapping (DSM) permits continuous mapping soil types and properties through raster formats considering variation within soil class, in contrast to the traditional mapping that only considers spatial variation of soils at the boundaries of delineated polygons. The objective of this study was to compare the performance of SoLIM (Soil Land Inference Model) for two sets of environmental variables on digital mapping of saturated hydraulic conductivity and solum depth (A + B horizons) and to apply the best […]

INDICATOR INDEXING METHODS IN ASSESSMENT OF SOIL QUALITY IN RELATION TO WATER EROSION

Bernardo Moreira Cândido, Marx Leandro Naves Silva, Nilton Curi, Diego Antônio França de Freitas, Ronaldo Luiz Mincato, Mozart Martins Ferreira

01/Mar/2015

Assessing the quality of agricultural soils is important for defining and adopting management practices that ensure socioeconomic and environmental sustainability. The methods for indexation of quality indicators called the Integrated Quality Index (IQI) and the Nemoro Quality Index (NQI) were used in this study to evaluate soil quality in experimental plots planted to eucalyptus. The selection of these indicators was made based on nine soil quality indicators: geometric mean diameter, water permeability, organic matter, macro- and microporosity, total porosity, bulk […]

Water erosion post-planting in eucalyptus forests in the Parana river basin, eastern Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil

Bernardo Moreira Cândido, Marx Leandro Naves Silva, Nilton Curi, Pedro Velloso Gomes Batista

01/Oct/2014

In tropical regions, the damage caused to soil by rainwater, i.e., soil erosion, is the most significant form of soil degradation. In Brazil, eucalyptus plantations are mainly located in ecosystems sensitive to anthropogenic disturbances for reasons such as the occurrence of plantations in soils with low clay contents, soils with low natural fertility, and most plantations being established on areas previously occupied by agriculture or by degraded pastures. Thus, the need arises for understanding the processes that control water erosion […]
