BIODYNAMIC MANAGEMENT IN SODIC SOILS

A. A. ANSARI AND S. A. ISMAIL

Experiments were conducted during the year 1999, at Shivri farm of Uttar Pradesh Sudhar Nigam, Lucknow
(India) to assess the utility and importance of cow horn in the preparation of cow horn manure (BD 500) in
sodic soils. It was observed that the preparation (cow dung) harvested after a period of 6 months from the cow
horn was significantly better in terms of physical, chemical and biological properties when compared with the
preparation (cow dung) harvested from bull horn, buffalo horn and mud pot. The BD-500 harvested from the
pits had a heavy texture with the characteristics of soil. Biodynamic management could be another promising
technology that could be employed in bioremediation process of problematic soils.
