Biological oxidation (Subramoney, 1958)
Changes in Redox potential
Oxidation of sulphur compounds and subsequent hydrolysis (Money and Sukumaran, 1973)
Exchangeable aluminium (Alice, 1984) Soil Acidity Origin and Soils Cultivation Management of floods Flood Management Rice - Shrimp farming
Rice from January to May
Shrimp from March to October (Jayan and Sathyanathan, 2010) Soil Classification Types Acid Sulphate Peaty -Kari Soils
Saline Hydromorphic - kayal Soils
Acid Hydromorphic -Karappadom soils
( Unnikrishnan,1993) Head Body Body Body Body Body Body Body Body Body Body Body Body Kari soils - Fine loamy, Mixed, Isohyperthermic, Typic sulphaquent
Kayal soils - Fine mixed Isohyperthrmic, Aeric Tropaqepts
Karappadom soils - Fine Mixed, Isohyperthermic, Typic Hydraquent
(Unnikrishnan, 1993) Soil Taxonomy Fully burnt lime at the time of sowing (Subramoney and Sankaranarayanan, 1963)
Half the LR for karapadom soils
Full LR for the kari soils (Kabeerathumma, 1969)
Application of lime and phosphatic fertilizer (Varghese et al. 1970)
1/10th and 1/5th of LR for Kari Soils (Money and Sukumaran,1973)
Leaching of salts ,application of lime and continuous flooding for Rice (Kuruvila and Patnaik,1994)
Application of P and lime reduced the Al content of plants in Kari soil.
Liming alone for Kayal and Karappadom soils (Muralidharan and Rattan, 2001) Acididty Management - Liming Effects of Liming on Nutrients Increase the available nitrogen (Anandavalli et al.1966)
P availability increased when limed with phosphate (Kurup,1967)
Liming reduced the Ex. K due to fixation in Kuttanad soils (Kabeerathumma and Nair, 1973) Effects of Liming on nutrients pH, Ex. base saturation, Ca and total Ex. bases significantly and negatively correlated with LR (Kuruvila, 1974)
Liming and High fertilizer dose retard iron toxicity (Thampatti et al. 2005)
Doses and sources of lime have no influence on rice in kuttanad soils (Annie et al., 1990) Challenges Tourism
Mangrove ecosystem
Land transformation
Extinction of fish fauna
