increase soil disturbance and contribute to the destruction of the soil structure, loss of organic matter, and increase the chances of soil erosion ( Wszelaki et al., 2007 ). Flame weeding has been proposed as an alternative to these traditional techniques

green roof applications when growing succulents such as stonecrop. The non-succulents used in this study required deeper substrates, additional organic matter, or supplemental irrigation. Irrigation for optimum profit versus optimum yield in muscadine

organic constituents of six green roof substrates and their physical and chemical analyses. The sandy loam soil had 77.0% sand, 7.8% silt, 15.2% clay, and an organic matter of 0.703% w/w by loss on ignition, a pH of 8.63, and an EC of 0.08 dS·m −1 . Pumice

low organic matter, and high water tables are the norm. The nutrient-leaching potential of these soils is relatively high, which has important environmental and crop production implications. From the environmental standpoint, nitrate leaching to

showed that AWs reduced NO 3 − and SO 4 2− concentrations in agriculture drainage water ( Gruyer et al., 2011 ; Lin et al., 2002 ; Whitmire and Hamilton, 2005 ; Xue et al., 1999 ). When wastewaters are rich in NO 3 − and SO 4 2− but poor in organic

., 1996 ). Furthermore, soil organic matter and organisms in orchard row areas may decrease because of lack of actively growing cover in these middle areas. All these suggest that alternate in-row ground management systems need to be developed. Using crop

Most Florida soils are sandy or gravelly and exhibit low pH, low organic matter content, and poor water and nutrient holding capacities ( Brown et al., 1990 ). Studies conducted in Florida show that composts made from a number of organic waste

Conventional tomato ( Solanum lycopersicum ) production in the United States has declined in recent years while growth of organic production has increased rapidly [ U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), 2008 , 2016 , 2017 ]. U.S. organic tomato

indirectly by the COD. The COD represents the amount of oxygen required to completely oxidize contaminants in water and is therefore correlated with the required sanitizing agent concentration ( Tanwar et al., 2008 ). Biodegradable organic matter in reused
