Assessing the long-term effects of zero-tillage on the macroporosity of Brazilian soils using X-ray computed tomography (2018)
Journal Article

Zero-tillage (ZT) is being increasingly adopted globally as a conservationist management system due to the environmental and agronomic benefits it provides. However, there remains little information on the tillage effect on soil pore characteristics...

X-ray microtomography to evaluate the efficacy of paraffin wax coating for soil bulk density evaluation (2018)
Journal Article

The paraffin-coated method is a well-used approach to measure the soil bulk density (BD). BD is a physical property of great importance for studies of soil quality and health. Therefore, representative measurements of this property are highly valued.... Read More about X-ray microtomography to evaluate the efficacy of paraffin wax coating for soil bulk density evaluation.

Soil compaction effects on litter decomposition in an arable field: implications for management of crop residues and headlands (2018)
Journal Article

Soil compaction is a major threat to agricultural soils. Heavy machinery is responsible for damaging soil chemical, physical and biological properties. Among these, organic matter decomposition, which is predominantly mediated by the soil biota, is a...

Analysis of the inherent energy-food dilemma of the Nigerian Biofuels Policy using Partial Equilibrium Model: the Nigerian Energy-Food Model (NEFM) (2018)
Journal Article

The Nigerian government plans to produce bioethanol from its staple food crops to increase transport fuel supply, reduce imported motors fuels, create jobs and diversify its oil dependent economy. However, the conflicts between the benefits of biofue...

Middle-late quaternary palaeoclimate variability from lake and wetland deposits in the Nefud Desert, Northern Arabia (2018)
Journal Article

Records of former lake and wetland development in present day arid/hyper-arid environments provide an important source of information for palaeoclimatic and palaeoenvironmental studies. In Arabia, such records are typically confined to eccentricity-m...
