Abstract/Contents:"Remediation of dredge spoil (acid sulphate soil) of the Niger Delta with organic amendments notably poultry waste (PW) and red mangrove wood ash (WA) was tested using the common marine grass, Paspalum vaginatum. A combination of poultry waste and red mangrove wood ash had the highest vine length, followed by the red mangrove wood ash, poultry waste and least when no soil amendment was made. Results obtained for standing crop and net primary production had similar results as for vine length. However, the results for the disease severity (Disease Index =DI) showed that a combination of wood ash and poultry waste had the least disease severity followed by red mangrove wood ash, poultry waste and highest when no soil amendment was made. The treatment differences obtained for 2006 and 2007 were significant at 5% level. The organic amendment materials are not only readily available and cheap in the localities but also "environmentally friendly". This work is significant in the recently introduced re-vegetation of dredge spoils in the operational localities of the Niger Delta by oil companies."
