Most row-cropped soils of the southern USA are low in organic matter and must be limed frequently to maintain an acceptable pH. Industry, municipalities and agriculture produce organic and other waste materials that can be used as soil amendments to increase both soil organic matter and pH. Field experiments were conducted on Gigger-Gilbert silt loam complex (fine-silty, mixed, thermic, typic fragiudalf-glossaqualf) to assess the effects of municipal biosolids, composted sewage sludge, paper mill sludge and paper mill boiler ash.
