Table 2 Description of the treatments used to evaluate the effect of LRC and CSB on an edaphic material used in post-mining land reclamation

From: Effect of low-rank coal inoculated with coal solubilizing bacteria on edaphic materials used in post-coal-mining land reclamation: a greenhouse trial

Treatment Name Description
1 EM Absolute control
2 EM + P Relative control of the plants effect on the EM
3 EM + P + CSB Relative control of the plants and CSB inoculum effect
4 EM + P + LRC 1 % LRC (high doses) effect on EM in presence of plants
5 EM + LRC 1 % LRC (high doses) effect on EM in absence of plants
6 EM + LRC 0.1 % LRC (low doses) effect on EM in absence of plants
7 EM + CSB + LRC 1 % Effect of LRC (high doses) mixed with CSB inoculum, in absence of plants
8 EM + CSB + LRC 0.1 % Effect of LRC (low doses) mixed with CSB inoculum, in absence of plants
9 EM + P + CSB + LRC 1 % Effect of LRC (high doses) mixed with CSB inoculum, in presence of plants
10 EM + P + CSB + LRC 0.1 % Effect of LRC (low doses) mixed with CSB inoculum, in presence of plants
  1. EM edaphic material, P plants (maize), CSB inoculum of coal solubilizing bacteria, LRC low-rank coal
