|Abstract: ||The aims of this study were to contribute to a better knowledge of the effects of land
application of olive mill wastewater (OMW) and two-phase olive mill waste (TPOMW)
and, also, to obtain data necessary for the development of the best practices concerning
the application of those by-products to agricultural soils.
Several trials were set-up: (i) incubation trials on four different soils (VReu, CMhu,
LVfr and CMca); (ii) seed germination tests and (iii) greenhouse pot trials on two soils
(CMca and CMdy), using barley as test plant; (iv) a field trial was established on an
olive grove located in a calcaric Cambisol, near Santarém, were the application of 80,
160 and 240 m3/ha·year of OMW was evaluated along three years.
In conclusion, the controlled application of OMW and TPOMW to agricultural soils can
be an adequate option for these wastes, as it causes neither acidification nor salinisation
of the soil. In addition, the yield and the quality of the crop are also not affected.
The Portuguese legislation concerning the agricultural use of OMW should be revised,
as it imposes some unnecessary limitations, in the author’s opinion. On the other hand
special attention should be given to the fact that these wastes lead to a decrease on the
nitrate levels in soil.|
