Plastic wastes in recent years have become a menace owing to population pressure and high demand of various plastic products in daily use. A study was conducted in Aizawl city of northeast India for a period of 3 years to quantify various types of plastic wastes. Our study found that a present plastic consumption of 13.06 g/capita/day although low when compared to developed countries continues; the generation will be doubled after a decade as the population is projected to double specially due to migration from rural areas. The plastic waste was contributed more by the high-income group of the population with a correlation factor of r = 0.97. Among the total plastic waste, packaging plastics contributed maximum with an average of 52.56% and carry bags among the packaging contribute maximum with 32.55% in the three sectors, namely, residential, commercial, and dumping sites. The result leads to a …

Tropical forests play important role in global carbon cycle and mitigating of global warming through carbon sequestration. Data on carbon stock and sequestration of bamboo species are relatively less focused than other many woody plants. We aimed to study aboveground biomass and carbon stock of three age class (1, 2 and ≥ 3 year) of Melocalamus compactiflorus (Kurz) Benth. using harvest method. Carbon stock was determined from the culm density drawn from requisite number of sample quadrates. Significant variations with respect to culm age were observed in bamboo forests. The ≥ 3 year age class exhibited highest contribution to total culm density. The average culm density was 11,457 culms ha−1 and average DBH and thickness of the culms were 2.14 cm and 4.5 mm respectively. The branch component contributed maximally (48.6%) to total aboveground biomass than the culm component (32 …

In the present study amendment of three types of compost made from lemon peels (LP), vegetable waste (VW) and cook food waste (CF) in garden soil was carried out. It was observed that pH in all the treatments increased from control with a maximum in LP with 22% and minimum in CF with 10% at 270 days. The soil temperature was higher than control with a maximum increase of 52% in CF and minimum of 20% in VW at 90 days. A maximum increase of OC was observed in CF compost treated soilwith 106% followed by LP with 64% and 24% in VW at 90 days. TN increased from control upto 90 days with 484, 100 and 46% rise in CF, VW and LP respectively. AP and AK also showed a very high increase rate with maximum of 551% in CF and 703% in LP respectively.

Cultivation of rice is widely practiced throughout the world as rice is a staple food for half of the world’s population. However, the emission of methane (CH 4) is an issue associated with the cultivation of rice. Many reports on the level of CH 4 emission after treatment of different kinds of organic materials in paddy fields were reported. It was observed that the application of a combination of tested locally available compost along with inorganic NPK fertilisers effectively reduced the rate of emission of CH 4. Intermittent wetting and drying in addition to the combined application of compost and NPK fertilisers will help in reducing the emission of CH 4 up to 40 to 45%. To undertake an intermittent drainage system is a difficult step for the farmers to implement as it has extra cost and labour. Therefore, lawmakers should initiate steps to help farmers in order to reduce the emission of CH 4 from paddy fields.

In the present study decomposition of leaf, branch, culm and sheath litter of the bamboo Melocanna baccifera in relation to monthly average precipitation (MAP) and monthly average temperature (MAT) was carried out. It was observed that the remaining mass at 180 days was 11% in leaf, 62% in sheath, 72% in branch and 78% in culm litter. Significant positive correlation of k (month-1) was recorded with MAT in leaf litter; with MAP in branch litter; with MAP and MAT in culm litter, however an inverse correlation with MAP in sheath litter was recorded. The negative response of sheath litter to MAP can be attributed to resistance during decomposition in the initial stage which corresponds to more rainy months.

The Northeastern hilly states of India harbor nearly 90 species of bamboos, 41 of which are endemic to the region. Estimation of C-storage and C-sequestration in aboveground biomass of two common bamboo species namely Bambusa tulda and Dendrocalamus longispathus was carried out in Mizoram-one of the eight states of Northeastern India. Recording of density of culms was done by quadrate method and harvesting of culms was done to estimate the aboveground biomass. C-storage in different components of the culms was found out for three age classes namely 1, 2 and ≥ 3 year old culms. Aboveground biomass ranged from 73.58 to 127 Mg/ha in Bambusa tulda and 115 to 150 Mg/ha in Dendrocalamus longispathus. Culm density and aboveground biomass were maximum in the ≥ 3 year age class in both the species. C-storage ranged from 36.34 to 64.00 Mg/ha in Bambusa tulda and 50.11 to 65 …

Composting is the most convenient and effective treatment of solid organic waste. In the present study composting of lemon peels, mixed vegetable waste and cooked food waste amended with garden soil was carried out. The thermophilic phase was reached by 21 days in all the composts mixture, with a range of 42 to 49 °C. The temperature in the cooked food waste mixture could not decrease to ambient temperature at the end of 90 days while lemon peel and mixed vegetable waste decreased to ambient temperature. The organic C, total N, available P and K declined from initial till the final stage in the lemon peel and mixed vegetable waste composting, while total N increased at final phase in the cooked food waste composting. The significant correlation of organic C with total N, available P and K in the composting process could be the reason for the declining trend. The amendment of garden soil leads to a …

The level of soil organic carbon (SOC) fluctuates in different types of forest stands: this variation can be attributed to differences in tree species, and the variables associated with soil, climate, and topographical features. The present review evaluates the level of SOC in different types of forest stands to determine the factors responsible for the observed variation. Mixed stands have the highest amount of SOC, while coniferous (both deciduous-coniferous and evergreen-coniferous) stands have greater SOC concentrations than deciduous (broadleaved) and evergreen (broadleaved) tree stands. There was a significant negative correlation between SOC and mean annual temperature (MAT) and sand composition, in all types of forest stands. In contrast, the silt fraction has a positive correlation with SOC, in all types of tree stands. Variation in SOC under different types of forest stands in different landscapes can …
