The current research work attempts to investigate perspectives for use of rock phosphate (RP) fertilizers in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) var Moneymaker cultured in Minirhitrons in greenhouse with Arenosol from West Africa and CHorizon of a Luvisol as well as two contrasting soils (acidic Ferralsol with pH(Ca[Cl.

5) compiled in 1987-1988, it is possible to conclude that a Eutri-Gleyic Arenosol profile formed on fine Litorina Sea sand and is only about 24 years old as it tends to be developed during the time after the retreat of the Litorina Sea.
Automorphic Podzols and Arenosols have developed of sandy deposits of Ancylus and/or Litorina stages on the top of many outcrops.
One soil is a loamy sand from a pineapple farm at Goomboorian near Gympie (South East Queensland), classified as an Albic Arenosol in the FAO system of soil classification, or a Static Rudosol by Isbell (1996).
4 26 Middle terrace (P7), Endogleyic Arenosol, 14[degrees] 04'15.
The presence of Glcyic Solonchaks in the floodplain (PI, P2 and P3), Haplic Gleysols in the low terrace (P4, P5 and P6) and Endogleyic Arenosols in the middle terrace (P7, P8 and P9) shows the influence of hydrodynamic processes on local soil formation.
Although this soil would be expected to equate to either an Anthrosol or a Technosol, it has been classified as an Albic Arenosol (Transportie).
Nevertheless, it is likely that the large areas disturbed by mineral sand mining will be correlated with Arenosols (Transportic) rather than Technosols.
