Potential use of polyacrylamides (PAM) in reclaiming some problem soils
Sivapalan, Savi (2002) Potential use of polyacrylamides (PAM) in reclaiming some problem soils. In Williamson, David, Tang, C., & Rate, Andrew (Eds.) Australian Society of Soil Science National Conference, 2-6 December 2002, Perth, Western Australia, Australia.
Polyacrylamides (PAM) are used in many countries for the improvement of soil physical properties. Interest among researchers in using polyacrylamides in Australian agriculture is steadily increasing over the past few years. Soils with hardsetting properties are widespread in Australia and render difficulties for the germination of seeds of many crops. Crop production in coarse-textured soils is limited due to low water holding capacity of these soils. Sodic soils in rice growing areas create turbidity of water that seriously affects the successful establishment of rice seedlings. This paper explores the possible applications of PAM to remedy these problems.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
