Abstract

Grasses (family Poaceae), which belong to the weeds growing in water habitat between inland swamp and land, have the ability to survive the inland swamp environment that is inundated and poor in nutrients due to acidic soil. Lowland between inland swamp and land experiences waterlogging condition that changes over time from a puddle of water, which is very high in the rainy season, to ebb, becoming dry especially during the dry season. The objective of this study was to find out the variation of biomass in some grasses growing in water habitat between inland swamp and land. The study was conducted from April to July 2009 in Banjar Regency, South Kalimantan, at the villages of Tungkaran, Sungai Rangas, Penggalaman, and Sungai Tabuk. The analysis of samples was carried out at the Basic Laboratory of Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Siences, Lambung Mangkurat University Banjarbaru. There were seven stations, which were determined purposively, with three plot replications; the smallest plot was 20 x 20 cm. Three types of grass samples were taken and measured for individual height, wet weight, dry weight, moisture content and ash content. Measurements of the environmental parameters included the pH of soil and water, and the analysis of total N, P, and K. The average dry weight biomass of Hymenachne amplexicaulis, Brachiaria plantaginea, and Brachiaria mutica ranged from 1,135.18 to 2,556.80 gm-2, 1,854.88 to 2,480.63 gm-2, and 1,353.98 to 3,204.9 gm-2, respectively. These results indicate that the grasses growing closer to land, namely Brachiaria plantaginea and Brachiaria mutica, have higher biomass than the one growing a bit far from the land, namely Hymenachne amplexicaulis.

Abstract

Central Kalimantan with an area of 15,356,400 hectares have the degraded area of 4,636,890 hectares, some of which are peatlands. Peatlands are different from mineral lands or other organic lands. The chemical properties and characteristics of the peat including high acidity, low nutrient availability, and level of pyrite or sulfur should become the critical concerns for the success of land rehabilitation. One of the rehabilitation measures for degraded peatlands is by carrying out agroforestry techniques, the cropping patterns combining forest and agricultural crops that are mutually synergistic, with the goal of timber production in the long-term and crop production in the short term to meet the daily needs. The community development on agroforestry techniques on peatland in Sabaru Village, Palangkaraya, is one way to provide the insight to public to use lands to increase their income while improving and increasing the land productivity. The methods used in the agroforestry techniques in the village were the extension and training. The selected forest crop was meranti (Shorea Belangeran) and the perennial crops were petai (Parkia speciosa), mango (Mangifera indica) and rambutan (Niphelium lappaceum), while the agricultural crops were okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) and cayenne pepper (Capsicum frutescens), and the versatile crops turmeric (Curcuma domestica), lemongrass (Cymbopogon nardus), red ginger (Zingiber officinale Var. Rubrum Rhizoma), and kencur (Kaempferia galanga L.). The extension was performed by introducing the types of forest and agricultural crops, land preparation, planting techniques, and maintenance. The training was conducted by carrying out direct practices of agroforestry techniques, which created a pilot project on an area of 0.5 hectares. After 5 months, the results showed that Shorea Belangeran and Parkia speciosa had the growth percentage of 90%. Although the agricultural and versatile crops grew well, they were used only for everyday purposes.

Abstract

Fly ash can be used and utilized as an adsorbent because it is cheap and effective to adsorb waste in the aquatic environment. Hg also known as Mercury is a carciogenic heavy metal and potentially threatens human health at very low concentrations. In this study, fly ash was applied as the adsorbent for Hg2+ in the form of chitosan-fly ash composite pellet and was cross-linked with glutaraldehyde in order to know how much the mass of pellets that can be used to lower the concentration of Hg2+ in solution. The results showed that the fly ash can be compositated with chitosan gel after going through the process of physical-chemical activation so that it can be formed into adsorbent pellets/granules. The optimum condition was obtained from adsorbent pellets of fly ash-chitosan composite crosslinked with glutaraldehyde after contacted with a solution containing Hg2+ with the pellet mass of 3 g.Keywords: composite, fly ash, glutaraldehyde, pellets

Abstract

In the economy of South Kalimantan, the agricultural sector has a significant growth and plays a role as one of the major contributors to the economic structure. However, in some areas with particular land typology like freshwater swamp; it is not reflected in the level of farmers’ welfare. In reality, many farming households in freshwater swamp that solely rely on rice farming still live in a poor condition because of low income. It is therefore necessary to find the alternative solutions through agribusiness innovation. Until now freshwater swamp is always identified with non-organic rice or conventional freshwater swamp rice; Alabio livestock, Alabio potato and Swamp buffalo. The purpose of this study was to analyze the potency of freshwater swamp for the welfare of farmers through agribusiness innovation in addition to oil palm plantations. The study was conducted in Teluk Limbung Village, Babirik Subdistrict, Hulu Sungai Utara Regency, by census with 17 farmers as the respondents. The productivity of organic rice in freshwater swamp reached 4.6 tons/ha. The earned income was greater compared to the income when the farmers only grew inorganic rice like what is commonly cultivated by farmers in the swampy lands.

Abstract

Fly-ash (FA) is largely alkaline in nature and contains many essential elements for plant growth along with toxic metals.  Therefore, fly-ash is potential to be applied as soil ameliorate that may improve soil properties and plant growth.  In this experiment we studied the changes in chemical properties and rice production  of acid sulphate soils amended with fly ash.  Six different amounts of FA, viz. 0 (100% soil), 5, 10, 20, 40 and 75 tones FA ha-1 were added homogenously to 6 kg of soils in pots of PVC and then chemical properties of acid sulphate soils were observed after a 3-week of incubation. Subsequent of  the observation of soil properties, rice was planted onto the pots.  Results of study showed that fly-ash application improved soil pH and exchangeable Ca.  However, the availability of nitrogen of acid sulphate soils decreased significantly with fly-ash application.  The experiment also showed that fly-ash application to soils improved rice growth (height plant, number of tillers, dried-weight root and dried-weight shoot) and rice production. Application 20 tones FA ha-1 resulted in higher rice production than the application 0, 5 and 10 tones FA ha-1, and increasing subsequent the amount of FA application did not significantly increase the rice production. Results of this study demonstrate that low-level fly-ash application resulted in the improvements of soil chemical properties and rice production.Key words: fly-ash application; soil ameliorant; heavy metals; sub-optimal low land.
