GLRPPR Sector Resource: Dredged Sediment: Application as an Agricultural Amendment on Sandy Soils

Title:
Dredged Sediment: Application as an Agricultural Amendment on Sandy Soils

Abstract:
Periodic dredging of lakes and waterways generates large amounts of material, often stored indefinitely in extensive sediment basins. A proposed dredging project in the Peoria Lake portion of the Illinois River will generate an abundant amount of sediments. This study proposed using sediments dredged from the Illinois River to enhance sandy soils as sediments often have high nutrient levels and physical properties that are desirable for agricultural production.
