    , shoot dry weight, and N percentage in leaf were obtained when treatment 25MS-75Pe was applied. Moreover for treatments 25SG-75Pe, no significant differences were observed with respect to the controls in seedbed parameters. Important reductions in emergence and seedling production were detected with SC, most probably due to their high acidity. Results suggest that MS (25MS-75Pe and 33MS-67Pe) and 25SG-75Pe offer a relevant nutritional potential and their high organic matter contents allow them to be considered as organic fertilizersorganic fertilizersSubject Category: Commodities and Products
