Abstract/Contents:"In order to solve the problems that soil characters was easily deteriorated in urban greenbelt and sufficiently utilize spent mushroom compost, soil improvement experiment in greenbelt was carried out. The effect of spent mushroom compost on soil physical properties and turf growth in greenbelt was studied by treatments of bliending [blending] (H), the mulching (F), blending and mulching (HF). The results showed that all the three application method can reduce the upper layer (0~10cm) soil bulk density and increase the total porosity significantly, the ideal application method was the F and HF treatment. The soil permeability and moisture content was also significantly increased with the different application method, the moisture content ranking from high to low was F HF H, and were increased by 31%, 23%, 16%, respectively, compared to CK all the three application method also presented significant promotion on the lawn growth rate, tiller density and underground biomass. The number of turf tiller density and underground biomass were the highest with F treatment and compared to CK treatment increased by 46% and 35%, respectively. More than 96% of weed population were reduced with F treatment, the inhibition rate with HF treatment were 56% and there was no inhibiting effect with H treatment. Through NTEP the comprehensive assessment of the external appearance quality of lawn, the comprehensive score of F treatment was 6.73 and the external quality appearance was good. The HF and H treatment were 5.91 and 5.55, respectively, their external quality appearance were both fair. Except H treatment soil temperature variation was less in F and HF treatment."
