The soil was red-yellow Oxisol. The local climate is 'Af' type, with mean annual 2450 mm rainfall (ALVARES et al., 2013).
In sub-tropical crops and pastures grown in Australia, no benefits of DMPP on [sup.15]N fertiliser recovery or N loss mitigation were found in either an Oxisol wheat-maize cropping system (De Antoni Migliorati et al.

Biochar effect in increasing plant growth was probably due to the amelioration effect in the contaminated soil by increasing soil pH and the availability of some nutrients such as P and K which was confirmed in the study of DEENIK & COONEY (2016) when corn cob and sewage sludge biochar was applied to an oxisol. The authors observed that biochars in combination with fertilizer doubled plant growth compared to the control in the first crop cycle produced no significant effect in the second cycle, and more than tripled plant growth for the sewage sludge biochar in the third cycle.
The soil of the experimental area was classified as Nitossolo (Oxisol) (Embrapa, 2013).
The soil is classified as Yellow Latosol (oxisol) with loamy texture, and a predominant vegetation of dense ombrophilous type of terra firme (Rodrigues et al., 2001).
The soil types at the experimental sites were Mollic Oxisol, Latosol and Mollic Oxisol for Lanet, Bahati and Egerton University sites, respectively [12].
Laboratory batch experiments were carried out to investigate the adsorption and desorption of Zn and Cu in an Oxisol and Ultisol amended with three rates of sewage sludge (T1=0% (control), T2=5% and T3 =10% sludge).
