Abstract/Contents:"Changes produced in the microbiological properties of earthworm Lumbricus terrestris casts and surrounding soil by the addition of various organic wastes such as wheat straw (WS), tea production waste (TEW), tobacco production waste (TOW), cow manure (CM), and hazelnut husk (HH) were evaluated in an incubation experiment. Twenty-one days after organic waste treatment, analyses of microbial biomass (Cmic), basal soil respiration (BSR), metabolic quotient (qCO2), and enzyme activities (dehydrogenase, catalase, β-glucosidase, urease, alkaline phosphatase, and arylsulphatase) were carried out on collected cast and soil samples. Addition of organic wastes to the soil increased values of Cmic, BSR, and enzyme activities in soil and earthworm casts, indicating activation by microorganisms. Except for catalase activity, these values of microbiological parameters in casts were higher than in surrounding soil at all waste treatments and control. The addition of organic wastes caused a rapid and significant increase in organic carbon, total nitrogen, and microbiological properties in both soils; this increase was especially noticeable in soils treated with TEW."
