1990) carried out near Goulburn on a degraded pasture slope (slope 10-12%, slope length 180 m) on a yellow podzolic soil. Long-term average soil loss for the G1-G3 pasture slopes (average slope 7%, slope length 80 m, USLE K-factor 0.026 t.ha.h/MJ, mm), estimated using the USLE-based SOILOSS program (Rosewell 1993), is 0.4 t/ha.year.
The objective of this study was to evaluate whether 19 years of irrigated, minimum-till kikuyu ryegrass pasture on a podzolic soil altered the distribution and quality of biological properties formerly developed under undisturbed natural fynbos rangeland.
Similar relationships between particle size and frequency dependence to those in this study were shown by Sandgren and Thompson (1990) for 4 horizons of a podzolic soil in central Poland.
The podzolic soil from solid rock under mosses and lichens (C11) showed an aromatic-C pattern comparable to Podzols in temperate climate regions.
Briefly, soils had been under a subterranean clover-based pasture for at least 8 years and have been classified as members of yellow or red podzolic soil groups (Stace et al.
Plants were grown in the <2-mm fraction of topsoil (0-10 cm) of a Yalanbee lateritic soil (a lateritic podzolic soil, which is an Alfisol; Soil Survey Staff 2010) from Bakers Hill, 73 km east of Perth, Western Australia.
Soil samples were collected from the top 50 cm (0-5, 5-10, 10-15, 15-20, 20-30, and 30-50 cm depths) from 3 adjacent sites carrying pasture and monocultures of Pinus radiata (radiata pine) and Quercus suber (cork oak) on a deep-surfaced yellow podzolic soil, and differences in soil pH and other soil chemical properties were examined.
