WELCOME TO MY HOMEPAGE

 

I have been involved with Soil Fertility and Fertilizers research since 1982, while still an undergraduate student. It has been very exciting to learn and apply the concepts of this important science. This homepage summarizes my activities, with special emphasis on those related with teaching and research. Here you will find information which I hope to be of interest to those who also study, teach or use the knowledge of Soil Science to obtain profitable crop production. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or wish to discuss the topics included in this webpage.

QUESTIONS RELATED WITH MY CURRENT RESEARCH:

 

What is the mineralogical composition of P fertilizers ?

How water-soluble should acidulated P fertilizers be ?

How available is the P from phosphate impurities present in acidulated phosphate fertilizers ?

How to produce under laboratory conditions the water-insoluble compounds present in acidulated P fertilizers ?

Under what agronomic conditions are low water-soluble acidulated P fertilizers more effective ?

Is compaction of phosphate rock and water-soluble P effective to enhance the P availability
of the PR ?
