The aim of this study was to investigate plant corn yield with some plant nutrient contents of root and shoot and, soil after the increased applications rates of sewage sludge (0%, 2.5%, 5%, 7.5% 10%).
The increase in contents of N, P, K and Ca of the
experimental soil was statistically significant while it was insignificant for
Mg by the effect of increased sewage sludge application. The applications
resulted in significant increases for the total fresh and dry weight of plant
corn compared to the control. It was found that sewage sludge applications
affected significantly for the plant nutrient contents of N, P, K, Ca, and Mg.
On the other hand, the increased application of sewage sludge resulted in
statistically significant changes of plant shoot contents of N, P, K, Ca, and
Mg. The shoots contents of N, P, Ca and Mg significantly increased unlinearly
compared to the control application while the increases were linear for the
shoot N and P contents. As a result of this study carried out with fresh sewage
sludge taken from biological processing foundation for the housing originated
sewage sludge in the iskenderun county of
Hatay province, fresh and dry yield decreased by the increased sewage sludge
applications of 7.5% (AÇ7.5) and 5% (AÇ5) respectively, even though there were
somehow positive effects in terms of plant nutrients in general. This suggests
that the applications in sequence during the growing seasons under uncontrolled
conditions may cause to the problems in plants and soil in time.
