Agriculture Plot Sludge Application

Slave Lake Pulp Site 

Field plots were established in 1992 to evaluate the impact of land application of sludge and ash materials from SLP on soils and vegetation. 

ANC Mayerthorpe Site

This experimental plot area was established in May, 1993 near Mayerthorpe, AB to evaluate the addition of different rates of conventional and de-ink sludge on soils and plants.

Fertilizer and Sludge Comparison

In May 1997, a fertilizer and sludge comparison project was implemented at the ANC Mayerthorpe site to determine whether the sludges can economically replace a portion or all of a commercial fertilizer application to achieve a target yield.
