Increasing Soil Organic Matter Acknowledgments References 46 52 54 54 Abstract Soil organic matter is important in relation to soil fertility, sustainable agricultural systems, and crop productivity, and there is concern about the level of organic matter in many soils, particularly with respect to global warming Longterm experiments since 1843 at Rothamsted provide the longest data sets on the effect of soil, crop, manuring, and management on changes in soil organic matter under temperate climatic conditions The amount of organic matter in soil depends on the input of organic material, its rate of decomposition, the rate at which existing soil organic matter is mineralized, soil texture, and climate All four factors interact so that the amount of soil organic matter changes, often slowly, toward an equilibrium value specific to the soil type and farming system For any one cropping system, the equilibrium level of soil organic matter in a clay soil will be larger than that in a sandy soil, and for any one soil type the value will be larger with permanent grass than with continuous arable cropping Trends in long-term crop yields show that as yield potential has increased, yields are often larger on soils with more organic matter compared to those on soils with less The effects of nitrogen, improvements in soil phosphorus availability, and other factors are discussed Benefits from building up soil organic matter are bought at a cost with large losses of both carbon and nitrogen from added organic material Models for the buildup and decline of soil organic matter, the source and sink of carbon dioxide in soil, are presented Introduction The following quotation taken from Sanskrit literature was written perhaps 3500 or 4000 years ago and yet it is as relevant today as it was then Besides emphasizing the importance of the soil upon which food is grown, the phrase ‘‘surround us with beauty’’ brings to the fore issues about the environment: Upon this handful of soil our survival depends Husband it and it will grow our food, our fuel and our shelter and surround us with beauty Abuse it and the soil will collapse and die taking man with it The decline and collapse of many ancient civilizations is clear evidence of the truth of these statements In Mesopotamia, the Sumerian society, which started about 3000 BC, became the first literate society in the world, but then gradually perished as its agricultural base declined as the irrigated soils on which its food was produced became so saline that crops could no longer be Soil Organic Matter: Its Importance in Sustainable Agriculture and Carbon Dioxide Fluxes grown In Mesoamerica, the earliest settlements of the Mayan society date from about 2500 BC Intellectually this society was remarkable, particularly in its study of astronomy, yet its decline started once internal and external factors led it to give too little attention to managing its intensive agriculture in terraced fields on the hillsides and raised fields in swampy areas Although soil cultivation and growing crops produce food for people and animals, the appreciation and understanding of the processes involved took many centuries It was in 1840 that Liebig (1840) presented his report entitled ‘‘Organic Chemistry in its Application to Agriculture and Physiology’’ to the British Association for the Advancement of Science In it he noted that: ‘‘The fertility of every soil is generally supposed by vegetable physiologists to depend on humus This substance (is) believed to be the principle nutriment of plants and to be extracted by them from the soil.’’ The hypothesis was that plant roots have tiny mouths and ingest small fragments of humus directly Liebig demolished this hypothesis and he expressed the view that humus provides a slow and lasting source of carbonic acid This could be absorbed directly by the roots as a nutrient or it could release elements like potassium (K) and magnesium (Mg) from soil minerals The importance of soil organic matter (SOM) in soil fertility was questioned by the early results from the field experiments started by Lawes and Gilbert at Rothamsted between 1843 and 1856 The results showed that plant nutrients like nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and K, when added to soil in fertilizers and organic manures, like farmyard manure (FYM), were taken up by plant roots from the soil As the annual applications of fertilizers and FYM continued, the level of SOM in FYM-treated soils increased relative to that in fertilizer-treated soils, but even into the 1970s, yields of cereals and root crops were very similar on both soils (see later) This gave rise to the belief that, provided plant nutrients were supplied as fertilizers, extra SOM was of little importance in producing the maximum yields of the crop cultivars then available It should be noted, however, that Lawes and Gilbert never said that fertilizers were better than FYM They realized that no farmer would ever have the amount of FYM they were using (35 t haÀ1 annually on each FYM-treated plot) to apply to every field every year However, what they appreciated was that by using fertilizers, there was the possibility that farmers could produce the increasing amounts of food that would be necessary to feed the rapidly increasing population of the UK at that time Very much more recently, Holmberg et al (1991), like many others, have talked about the importance of agricultural sustainability: Sustainable agriculture is not a luxury When an agricultural resource base erodes past a certain point, the civilisation it has supported collapses There is no such thing as a post-agricultural society (Holmberg et al., 1991) Any definition of sustainability related to the managed use of land must include physical, environmental, and socioeconomic aspects No agricultural Strategies for Producing More Rice with Less Water 383 Planet.’’ Proceedings of the 4th International Crop Science Congress
