Paper Title:
Evaluation on Application of Artificial Soil Made by Organic Wastes
  Abstract

Natural soil would be used for planting on paved area ground, but it had been replaced by the light weighted artificial soil to minimize burden of the structure. But, the existing light weighted soil had nearly capacity of fertilizer adsorption due to its glassy surface. In this study, the artificial soil prepared by sewage sludge was manufactured, tested characteristics as soil and examined on planting. The developed soil was analyzed through specific gravity, pH, water content, volatile matter and was tested on adsorption capacity of Cu. In addition, planting examination analyzed the leaf growth of planting and mouseear cress plant's pollen. As the result, the developed artificial soil showed to be color yellowish brown, bulk density 0.6g/cm3, pH 8~9, volatile matter 0.3, CEC 10, pressure strength 25 ton/m2, hydrophilic and non-toxic, which was suitable for rooftop gardening. Also, periodic growth rate and development of leaves was satisfactory as natural soil and growth and numbers of pollens were good. Consequently, the developed artificial soil with porosity and capacity of fertilizer adsorption could be usefully applicable to planting on the paved area.
