The article describes the 1400 hectars Brettenham Manor Farm, owned by JA & PE Wright partnership in Great Britain. The farm is made up of light and free-draining sandy soil that absorbs the heaviest rainfall without becoming muddy. Such soil is characterized as easy working, and is said to reduce the needed tractor power on big acreage. The light land also simplifies the cultivation needs.

    Preferential flow through macropores may allow reactive solutes to travel long distances in soil. The amount of solute transported is expected to depend on the ability of the macropore wall materials to retain the solute from the bypassing solution. From a loamy sand soil, samples of bulk...

    Desorption kinetics of benzene was investigated with a modified biphasic desorption model in a sandy soil with five different powdered activated carbon (PAC) contents (0, 1, 2, 5, 10% w/w) as sorbents. Sorption experiments followed by series dilution desorption were conducted for each sorbent....
