Urban Farming Comes with Unique Soil Contamination Risks

Urban Farming Comes with Unique Soil Contamination Risks

In one experiment compost piles were laced with insecticides and herbicides, the insecticide (carbofuran) was completely degraded, and the herbicide (triazine) was 98.6% degraded after 50 days of composting. Soil contaminated with diesel & gasoline was composted, after 70 days, the total petroleum hydrocarbons were reduced approx 93%. Compost seems to bind lead in soils, making it less likely to be absorbed by living things.

What is Soil Contamination? Soil contamination refers to the destruction of land that could be used constructively by human activities, either directly or indirectly. Presently, 300,000 ha of UK land is thought to be contaminated by toxic elements such as lead and arsenic. The same goes for the other industrialized nations which are the worst hit. The developing countries are also steadily but surely moving toward this direction.This should be …
