MORAES, Milton Ferreira; CANTARELLA, Heitor; QUAGGIO, José Antonio  e  COSCIONE, Aline Reneé. Ion mobility in acid soils with surface application of lime, organic acid and crop residues. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Solo [online]. 2007, vol.31, n.4, pp.673-684. ISSN 1806-9657.

The efficiency of subsurface acidity alleviation by surface liming in the presence of crop residues is controversial and more information is needed. The objective of this study was to quantify the contribution of cover crop residues, regarding their contents of low molar mass organic acids and soluble nutrients to mobilization in the soil profile of the reaction products of surface-applied lime. Two experiments were carried out under laboratory conditions using 30 cm high PVC cylinders filled with acid and clayey Red Latosol. Treatments consisted of liming to 80 % soil base saturation (6.1 t ha-1) solely as or liming combined with radish (Raphanus sativus) or with black oat (Avena strigosa) crop residues (20 t ha-1), as well as the equivalent amounts of organic acids and inorganic salts present in the plant materials. Lime application alone or associated with plant material reduced soil acidity in the 0-8 cm surface layer only. The low recovery of organic acids added to the soils (< 7.2 %) indicates that the acids were rapidly metabolized or adsorbed to the soil colloidal fraction, which explains the small effect on cation mobilization. A substantial part of the ion mobilization in the soil and leached solution after application of crop residues was probably due to the plant-own inorganic ion content due to the high water solubility: 65 to 71 % for cations and 84 % for anions. The largest amount of aluminum displaced from the soil was caused by the application of inorganic salt solutions. The presence of plant residues had little effect on the mobilization of the reaction products of surface-applied lime in the soil profile.
