Recycling Though Land Applications
Recycling Biosolids Through Land Applications Improves Soil Properties
Improvements such as water holding capacity which make conditions more favorable for root growth and increases the drought tolerance of vegetation.
Biosolid application also supplies nutrients essential for plant growth, including nitrogen, phosphorous and other essential micro nutrients. The nutrients in biosolids offer several advantages over those in inorganic fertilizers because they are organic and are released slowly to growing plants.
These organic forms of nutrients are less water soluble and, therefore, less likely to leach into groundwater or run off into surface waters.
