EFFECTS OF OLIVE MILL WASTEWATER SPREADING ON THE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF SOIL

Hamdi Sahraoui & Hafedh Jamil Mellouli
The use of olive mill wastewater (OMW) by agricultural spreading constitutes an alternative among the solutions proposed. The experiment was carried out in Sidi Bou Ali (Tunisia), with three treatments, T0, T1 (25 m3/ha) and T2 (50 m3/ha) during four months. By means the physical capillary model for porous media, pF curves were established and the effects of OMW on the soil physical characteristics were studied. It was concluded that the OMW, for the two...
