Microplastics in the agroecosystem: effects of plastic mulch film residues on the soil-plant system
Group: Soil physics and land management, Wageningen University

Due to the widely use of plastic mulch in agriculture, plastic residues in the soil are threatening soil quality. In this thesis, we assessed the effects of macro and micro sized plastic residues from polyethylene and biodegradable plastic mulch films on the soil-plant system, by investigating their effects on plant growth, rhizosphere microflora, soil physicochemical properties and soil functions.
By September we will present an overview of SENSE dissertations on this page, with links to the full texts of the dissertations.
