Impacts of anthropogenic activities on physical and selected chemical properties of soils in the natural forestË—savanna of Northern Ghana

This study assessed the impacts of anthropogenic activities on the textural and selected chemical properties of the soils in the natural forestË—savanna in northern Ghana by comparing the soil physicochemical status of protected forests and neighbouring unprotected forests which are prone to human pressures (except farming and settlements). Three study zones (Wungu, Serigu, and Mognori, which are parts of West Mamprusi,...

Goodness of fit of three infiltration models of a soil under long-term trial in Samaru, Northern Guinea Savanna of Nigeria

Good strategies for water conservation, runoff or flood control and erosion management can be achieved by proper understanding of soil water infiltration characteristics. Three infiltration models Kostiakov’s (1932), Philip’s (1957) and Horton’s (1940) were used to evaluate the infiltration characteristics of soils in a long-term fertilizer experiment in the Northern Guinea Savanna Agro Ecological zone...
