Assessment of Trace Element Contents in Soils and Water from Cerrado Wetlands, Triângulo Mineiro Region

Bruno Teixeira Ribeiro ORCID logo , Diogo Costa Nascimento, Nilton Curi, Luiz Roberto Guimarães Guilherme, Enio Tarso de Souza Costa, Guilherme Lopes, [...]

ABSTRACT In the Brazilian Cerrado biome, there are wetlands locally known as “Veredas”, which are swampy plains between hills and rivers. Since the 1970’s, the Cerrado biome has been gradually converted to livestock, crop, or forestry production. Until now, very few studies were conducted to evaluate the baseline contents of trace elements in Cerrado wetland soils. Due to their position in the landscape (bottom lands), the wetlands are potentially susceptible to contamination by runoff and/or leaching from surrounding areas at […]

Carbon Stocks and Pools in Relation to the Texture of Kaolinitic Soils from the Brazilian East Coast

João Bosco Vasconcellos Gomes, Carlos Alberto Silva, Tamara Letícia de Azevedo Ferreira, Mozart Martins Ferreira, Alberto Vasconcellos Inda, Nilton Curi

12/Sep/2018

ABSTRACT: Extremely kaolinitic soils of Tertiary age elevations on the Brazilian east coast present a wide range of texture, which is recognized as one of the main factors controlling the soil organic matter contents. This study aimed to investigate the organic C storage of different compartments of kaolinitic soils. The studied soils had a wide particle size gradient, were under native forest vegetation, and located on Brazil’s eastern coast (Coruripe – CF, Umbaúba – UF, Nova Viçosa – VF, Sooretama […]

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

02/Mar/2018

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 […]

Cemented Horizons and Hardpans in the Coastal Tablelands of Northeastern Brazil

João Bosco Vasconcellos Gomes, José Coelho Araújo, Pablo Vidal-Torrado, Miguel Cooper, Elen Alvarenga da Silva, Nilton Curi

18/Jan/2017

ABSTRACT Horizons with varying degrees of cementation are a common feature of the soils from the coastal tablelands of Northeastern Brazil. In most cases, these horizons are represented by the following subsurface horizons: fragipan, duripan, ortstein, and placic. The aims of this study were to analyze differences regarding the development and the degree of expression of cementation in soils from the coastal tablelands of Northeastern Brazil: Planossolo Háplico (p-SX), Espodossolo Humilúvico (p-EK), Espodossolo Ferrihumilúvico (p-ESK), and Argissolo Acinzentado (p-PAC) pedons.

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 […]

Podzolization in soils of depressed summit areas on the coastal plains of the brazilian Northeastern region

Elen Alvarenga Silva, João Bosco Vasconcellos Gomes, José Coelho de Araújo Filho, Carlos Alberto Silva, Samara Andrade de Carvalho, Nilton Curi

01/Feb/2013

The soils associated to depressed summits on the Coastal Plains are still little studied in Brazil and are differentiated in several aspects. Generally, the closer a soil is to these depressions, the sandier is the texture and the more accentuated the hydromorphism, where the occurrence of Spodosols is common. The objective of this work was to perform different extractions of Fe, Al, Si and organic C to understand the podzolization process in soils of the summit depressions of the Coastal […]

Soil losses from typic cambisols and red latosol as related to three erosive rainfall patterns

Regimeire Freitas Aquino, Marx Leandro Naves Silva, Diego Antonio França de Freitas, Nilton Curi, Junior Cesar Avanzi

01/Feb/2013

Rainfall erosivity is one of the main factors related to water erosion in the tropics. This work focused on relating soil loss from a typic dystrophic Tb Haplic Cambisol (CXbd) and a typic dystrophic Red Latosol (LVdf) to different patterns of natural erosive rainfall. The experimental plots of approximately 26 m2 (3 x 8.67 m) consisted of a CXbd area with a 0.15 m m-1 slope and a LVdf area with 0.12 m m-1 slope, both delimited by galvanized plates. […]

Arsenate and cadmium content in soils of the cerrado bioma

Mari Lucia Campos, Luiz Roberto Guimarães Guilherme, João José Granate de Sá e Melo Marques, Nilton Curi, Alessandra Siqueira Antunes Araújo, David José Miquelluti, [...]

01/Feb/2013

Knowledge on As and Cd levels in soils is important to monitor the entry of these elements into the food chain from anthropogenic sources. The purpose of this study was to determine the natural content of As and Cd in representative soils of the Cerrado region, Brazil. Soil samples were collected from three sub-regions: G (eastern Goiás), T (Triângulo Mineiro) and N (northeastern MG). To determine the soil levels of As and Cd, samples were digested by acid attack in […]
