A Recalibration of the Hydrometer for Making Mechanical Analysis of Soils
The aim of this study was to assess status of selenium (Se) and other trace elements in relation to soil
properties in the arid soils

Currently, most of what is known about aided phytostabilization of heavy metal-contaminated soils
focuses on analysis of physicochemical soil
properties, especially concentration of bioavailable forms of metals/ metalloids and their accumulation in plant tissues (Wilde et al.
However, there is plenty of research evidence--and that study is just one data point--that makes me believe we can improve soil
health, and in doing so, we can increase water-holding capacity and drought resilience across a wide range of climate zones, soils
and production systems.

Industrial activity, pollution and exploitation are degrading the quality of soils
